Maplewood Cemetery is located on the East Half of Lot 20, 9th concession of Beckwith Township. It was originally owned by Finlay McEwen and his wife Mary McInnes. St Fillans' and Pinegrove cemeteries had already been established on the other side of the concession road when Mr. McEwen was asked to open a cemetery on "his side of the road". He agreed and the cemetery area was measured and hard maple trees were planted on the outside of the perimeter of the cemetery site. This was done to afford beauty and shade as benefitting the name "Maplewood". The first burial was Finlay E. M. McEwen in 1893. The United Cemetery Board took over the cemetery responsibilities sometime after 1927, along with two adjoining St. Fillans' (taken over circa 1927) and Pinegrove (taken over circa 1953) Cemeteries. All three are now known collectively as Beckwith United Cemeteries.

This book (Vol. 2 Maplewood Cemetery) includes transcriptions of the surviving memorial stones that were erected prior to September 1985. This publication has value to researchers because it contains transcriptions from decades ago... some stones may no longer exist nor be as easily read today. Transcriptions of memorial stones erected since September 1985 do not appear in this book

Those persons who participated in the recording, proofreading, typing and mapping were: Darell Small, Alan Rayburn, Mary Rayburn, Dorothy Olmstead, Gordon Olmstead, Helen McLean, Allan Mackey, Peggy Mackey, Diana Hall, Betty Godfrey, Katherine Ferguson, Eulalie Cox, Jim Cox, Ken Collins, John Carruthers, Dolly Allen, all volunteers from the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society

Contents include:
  • Memorial stone transcriptions (organized by plot number)
  • Cemetery plot plan/map
  • Index to Memorial Stone Inscriptions (click here to browse the Index)
The adjoining cemeteries of St. Fillans' and Pinegrove are available separately in Volume 1 St. Fillans' Cemetery and Volume 3 Pinegrove Cemetery
