Elmview Cemetery is located on a knoll on the west side of Rideau Valley Drive, just south of the village of Kars. It was established about 1840 on the southeast corner of Lot 24, Concession 1, North Gower Township, on the farm of pioneer John EASTMAN, United Empire Loyalist. It is bounded on the south by St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, built there in 1876 on land given by James LINDSAY, pioneer settler from Lanarkshire, Scotland. St. John's Anglican Church was built in the centre of the cemetery in 1850, by John EASTMAN and others of the parish, and was moved into Kars Village in 1905.

The cemetery has apparently always accommodated both Anglicans and Presbyterians, in parallel areas within the boundaries, and is under the management of a cemetery board made up of representatives from both St. John's and St. Andrew's at Kars, St. James' Anglican and Knox Presbyterian, Manotick, and St. Paul's Anglican in Osgoode.

The earliest interment, according to the headstone, was in 1841

Contents include:
  • Elmview Cemetery, a historical sketch written by Coral Lindsay (1974)
  • Memorial stone transcriptions by Dr. R. B. Curtis (1974)
  • Index   Browse the complete Index
This book was entirely rekeyed by Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) volunteer Dolly Allen in 2000. The original Index was not rekeyed at that time, nor later. The OGS located a original 1974 used copy of the book. They scanned the Index from that 46 year old copy. It is included in this book. Buyers will notice a considerable difference in the print quality of the body of the book compared to the Index. With that said, the Index is both useful and accurate as it is provided in this edition.
