I thought I had answered you....
But here it goes again. The cemetery is located
behind the church.
Are you from the area?
Live in Pincher Creek. Have also lived in Warner and Milk River. Was born in the Foam Lake, Sk. area.
I truly am amazed at the beautiful cemetery in Minton. There was not one unknown grave.
I went on a mission end of May to photograph the cemetery in the church that I grew up in, as from conversations with the few remaining parishioners left , and they said that there was no record of burials. This was a challenge, as about 65-70% of the headstones were written in Ukrainian. I managed to translate most of them, but some were so badly weather beaten, as they were of the old sandstone type. Then I tramped around a bush to find the little abandoned church that was built on my maternal grandfather's land, found the 5 headstones, also Ukrainian, but preserved from the element because of the bush, then proceeded to photograph the cemetery were my parents are buried. In this cemetery, there are about 1650-1700 graves, and about 30-34 unknowns. So sad that thee is no one to replace the headstones.

Hi, I am just to happy to help out, as I too am interested in genealogy. Was driving down to Plentywood, Montana to visit my children and the latest addition (# 10 great grand) when I noticed the Minton cemetery. When I got to P-wood, got on the kids internet to see if it had been photo-documented, and decided that on my way home to Alberta, I would photograph the cemetery.

I cannot change the spelling of the last name because that is what the tombstone has and here is the listing from the National Gravesite Locator. I will make a note of an alternate spelling.

Thank you for the edit on Alice Lamoureux 129917993. I am not a relative. Are you interested in a transfer?

I can call the church when I return home to see if she is buried there. The Lamoureux transfers have been made except for two. I wish to keep them as they are direct relatives of mine. Jerry

I would rather do this on an individual basis. Please provide your relationship to the transfer person.

It is located behind the church.
I checked the cemetery and you're correct, the cemetery is after the burial date. I have a photo of his and Engele's headstone that someone sent me, but they must have sent the wrong cemetery info. I'm going to delete both of their memorials until they can send the correct cemetery info. Thanks for letting me know!
