History
Cemetery founders included Dr. Beatty, Thomas Dumble, George Stephens, A. Fraser, J. Sutherland, J.C. Field, Thomas Gillbard and A.S. Kennedy. The undertaking was promoted and financed largely by public subscription and sale of lots. Mr. Thomas Dumble, Jr. was largely responsible for the idea of a non-denominational cemetery but had only succeeded in getting the proposition well organized and underway when, through the result of an accident on the C.P.R., his body was the first to rest in the consecrated ground now known as the Union Cemetery.

From this humble beginning has grown the present organization which, with more than 135 years of unbroken experience to its credit, administers the cemetery needs of the public of Cobourg and the communities adjacent. The cemetery is operated solely for the benefit of the public and is non-profit.

The Cemetery comprises 20 acres of which 15 are currently in use. Within the beautiful landscape one finds traditional in-ground burials, many of which have historical significance for the early days of the area, as well as columbaria, a Memorial Wall, and Memorial Trees for the disposition and memorialization of cremated remains. There are currently 9,000 burials in 3,800 lots.

A complete record is kept of all interments and sales, and the Cemetery has computerized its records for better preservation.
