Transcriptions of the memorial stones in this cemetery were recorded by Ottawa Branch of The Ontario Genealogical Society volunteers Fern Small and Ken Collins in 1972 and first published in 1973.

The St. Lawrence United Church (formerly Methodist) and the cemetery were built on property originally owned by the Bamford family.

The cemetery is situated on Lot 9, Concession XVIII just a few hundred feet from the St. Lawrence River. It is on the south side of Wolfe Island and not far from the end or foot of the Island, consequently reference is often made to the Foot Church or the Foot Cemetery. The church was opened with a dedication service on March 15, 1874.

Probably due to the unfortunate calamity of the original church being hit by lightning and burning to the ground, there are no surviving burial records for this cemetery, or at least, none have been found. Many are buried here with no marker of any kind. Some of the interred are the pioneer settlers and a few of those are United Empire Loyalists.

This book is a tanscription of the memorial stones that still survived during the summer of 1972 when these transcriptions were recorded. A total of 88 headstones remained in 1972. The inscriptions of 83 of the stones record 138 burials. The earlies burial is 1846. The oldest person recorded was 97 years of age when he died in 1859.
