Renfrew Public Cemetery, also known as Thomsonhill or Thomsonville Cemetery, is located southeast of the Town of Renfrew on Lot 8, Concession 1 of the Township of Horton in the County of Renfrew.

It is a municipal public cemetery, still open, and is non-denominational,although a separate Roman Catholic cemetery exists at the northeast corner of the town.

There is good access to the Renfrew Public Cemetery. It can be reached by driving south-east from the junction of Raglan Street and Highway 60 along Raglan Street for a distance of 1.5 kilometres, then turning south-west (at the top of the hill) on Cemetery Street and proceeding two blocks to the main gate.

The property was owned by the Rev. Geo. Thomson and was sold in 1871 to the Renfrew Public Cemetery. It is well maintained and supervised. Some of the people interred here were pioneer settlers of the area around Renfrew and the town itself, and the Rev. Thomson is included among them. There are a number of people interred for whom there is no visible marker.
