In 1870 the small cemeteries situated throughout Lindsay were rapidly running out of room. A group of local businessmen purchased 10 acres of land south of Lindsay along the river and the Lindsay Cemetery Corporation was formed. The first burial in 1873 was a two year old girl. Her grave went unmarked until 2001 when the cemetery board provided a marker reminiscent of the era. In the first few years many transfer burials were carried out because of the expanding size of the town. The historic chapel, situated in the grounds was built in 1908 and is a beautiful example of the architecture of the period. In just over 130 years the cemetery has grown to 60 acres and become a non-profit organisation. Many dedicated volunteers have served on the Board of Directors, with two of the former members each serving over 50 years.
There are 16 wargraves here.
