This book includes transcriptions of the names and information engraved on all of the surviving gravestones, and records of persons buried without a surviving memorial stone, in the Munster Union Cemetery, Carleton County, Ontario.

This cemetery on WĹ Lot 11, Conc. VI Goulbourn Twp., is the successor to the Shillington Cemetery, Conc. V, Goulbourn Twp. Thomas TUBMAN bought this land from William SHILLINGTON, April 14, 1854. His daughter, Mary Jane TUBMAN, wife of John CONLEY, died January 29, 1885 aged 34 yrs. and was the first person buried here. On February 2, 1886, Thomas TUBMAN and his wife Isobel (nee HILL) deeded the property now known as Munster Union Cemetery for a cemetery. It includes 2 acres with the right of way for access and egress included. It was Mr. TUBMAN's wish that this property be non-denominational but rather for the community at large.

You will notice that older dates than 1885 have been recorded on some stones. This is because there were several bodies and stones moved here from the Shillington Cemetery.

The records in this book have been transcribed from the recordings on the stones and then the plot cards and book recordings were checked against these and separate sheets compiled for the unmarked graves. Some of the information for these unmarked graves has been obtained from church records and a few from newspaper clippings. In these unmarked graves the dates may be either date of death or date of interment.

Contents include:
  • Introduction
  • Photograps (2) views from the gate
  • Transcriptions of memorial stones
  • Records of interments in Munster Union Cemetery with no grave markers
  • Index   Browse the complete Index
