|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
"In 1903, Father Daniel Kehoe had a church built on the existing grounds in Kenilworth, known as Sacred Heart Church. Rev. Kehoe then purchased 6 acres of land north of the church property from Fred O’Donnell and one acre was then surveyed for a cemetery. The first burial in Sacred Heart Cemetery was 24 Aug. 1908 of Mary Ann O'Laughlin, aged 45 years, wife of John Purtell. The stone fence and gateway were erected in 1935. The cemetery records were looked after by the Parish Priest until July of 1944 when a cemetery board was appointed. Since that time more land was surveyed and the cemetery enlarged." [ogs.on.ca]
The former cemetery, Kenilworth Pioneer Catholic, across the highway and further up, was reaching its capacity.
