|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Saint John's Anglican Church was built by Irish emigrants in 1858 at the hamlet of Shrewsbury, Quebec. The adjoined cemetery was petitioned for consecration on Aug. 4th, 1864 by Rev. Joseph Griffin. Some of the local names interred here include: Morrison; Good; McCulloch; Swail; Copeland; Kennedy; McNeil; Chambers; Foot; Carruthers; Napp; Thompson; Clifford and McKnight.
The church was used routinely over the years as a "summer chapel" and for funeral services. As of 2010, ongoing vandalism and "ghost-hunters" have forced the Anglican Bishop of Montreal to discontinue service. The church was officially desecrated and deconsecrated on Dec. 4th, 2010 by Archbishop Edward Simonton. Plans are now in the works for the municipality to restore and protect the building and grounds.
