Search Ashton Cemetery:

The cemetery is neatly kept as is the approach from the highway to it, and is used currently by the people of the surrounding community.

Formerly the cemetery was near the St Joseph's Methodist Church building which was torn down in 1959 when the congregation disbanded.

It is not an old cemetery; the oldest recorded grave is that of J W Jones, who died May 16, 1920.
