Kvanvik cemetery was created in 1901. The first funeral took place on 31 August 1901; the official inauguration was on 23 October 1901 - there were many people present. At that time it was estimated that there was space for 100 burials. The cemetery was expanded in 1951.

It was built a new bell tower in 1949, work was carried out by three men from Kvanvik. In the same year it raised money for a new bell. This has the text: "Given by the villagers in 1949. I am the resurrection and the life." The bell tower is also used as tool shed.

There is a water below the cemetery - called Tjødna. From here there was added a water pipe and set up hand pump, so that people could get water at the care of graves. In 1998 it placed electricity and installed electric pump and a small pressure tank – it made it all much simpler with a water tap outside the bell tower.
