Transcriptions of the memorial stones in this cemetery were recorded by Edna Armstrong (nee McLinton), Iris M. Neville (nee McLinton) and George A. Neville in 1974 and first published the same year.

About the beginnings of Richmond, and St. Paul's Methodist church and cemetery:
    "The early history of this cemetery is associated essentially with the history of Wesleyan Methodism of the Richmond Circuit. Richmond began to be settled in 1817, but it was not until about 1820 that Methodists of the settlement began to be favoured by occasional visits of the first Methodist preacher, the Rev. M. Everitt, and later, by the Rev. Mr. Flint. By about 1822, Richmond was included in the Rideau Circuit. By 1834, the Richmond Circuit is referred to as "a two weeks circuit" embracing the following townships, viz: Goulbourn, North Gower, Marlborough, Beckwith, Montague and Huntley.

    No record appears to have survived which would serve to indicated where early burials would have been made following the settlement of Richmond in 1817 and the establishment of the Methodist Cemetery in 1882. The first recorded interment was made in 1875 [7 years before the formal establisment of the cemetery] for Robert T. Wright (B5). However, Leonard Brown, a long time resident of Richmond, maintains that the first burial was that of John GAMBLE (D12) who was killed on April 1, 1885, in a logging accident when the 'binder' in the logs broke."
