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 the summers of 1973-1975 and first published in 1975.

The condition of the stones varied considerably in 1975, such as badly weathered, some broken in half, some broken from the base, some partially buried. The vast majority, however, were in good condition and easily read. The researchers were unable to decipher only three stones.

Charles W Grant, Baron de Longeuil, who died in 1818 at 67 years of age was born about 1751. His represents the earliest birth recorded. Susannah Davis, who died in 1851 at the age of 91, appears to be the oldest person to have been buried in this cemetery.

The gravestones gave a wealth of information to the genealogical researcher. The Wolfe Islanders came from many places, such as, Somersetshire, Bedfordshire, Devonshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Yorkshire, Isle of Man, London (all in England). Also from Armagh, Kinsale and Queen's in Ireland. A few came from Scotland. Others came from Fogo in Newfoundland and from Cape Breton in Nova Scotia. A number came from south of the border to look for a better living on "the Island."

This book is a tanscription of the memorial stones that still survived during the summers of 1973-1975 when these transcriptions were recorded. A total of 208 headstones remained in 1975. The inscriptions of 208 of the stones record 386 burials of named individuals.
