The Cemetery is in a fenced in Church yard still active. The Church has services in the summer months. It is located on Concession 16, lot 6. The land was bought from John Montgomery for 5 shillings by John Travers, The Lord Bishop Of Ontario. The Church was built in 1862 as a United Church of England and Ireland, later became known as Christ Church Anglican. The deed was reistered on May 31,1864 but it was not consecrated until February 20,1901. The first burial was William Montgomery in 1870. In July 1972 the cemetery was checked by Fern Small & Ken Collins and at that time it held 27 stones and about 59 people. It is still a small very well kept cemetery.An article written by them reads" The first pews in the Church were donated by St. George's Cathedral Church in Kingston when they able to purchase new pews for themselves. The furniture was transported by S.S. Pierrepont, a coal-fired paddle wheeler, to Holliday dock on the north-east side of the Island. Henry and Richard Holliday transported and installed the pews in the church. Mrs George Ranous canvassed for funds to furnish other needed items for church services. Eliza Holliday also contributed a great deal towards the furnishing of the church." Eliza Holliday died in 1892 at age 39 from (I think it was diptherea) her brother's took turns at night gaurding her gravesite with a shot gun for about three or four months because of graverobbers. Medical students from Kingston Medical college at that peroid of time were willing to pay for the bodies that were stolen for anatomical studies.
Also has been known as Trinity Anglican Church & cemetery
