St. Johnís Anglican Cemetery is located on Raglin Street in Eganville, Grattan Township, Renfrew County, Ontario

This book includes transcriptions of all memorial stones that were present in August of 1990. Some stones may no longer exist nor be easily readable today. The transcribers published the results in 1992.

The following is a historical sketch of the cemetery prepared by Geraldine KUEHL in 1990:
    The land for this cemetery was donated in 1865 by an ambitious young Irishman named James BONFIELD of the Roman Catholic faith (c.1821-1883). See his tombstone in Old St. James Cemetery in Eganville, #47. Mr. BONFIELD had acquired ownership of the Egan property.

    The first plan made of the cemetery was burned in the fire of 1911 and we have no record of the date the plan was made.

    In 1929, pine trees were cut down by Mr. George GRIFFITH and Samuel LEACH. In the same year, a tile drain was put through the new part of the cemetery and the use of cement walls around plots was prohibited.

    In 1932, the stumps were removed and in 1935 the grading and seeding was done. In 1942 the first cemetery service was held on September 13th.

    In 1960 the old fence was removed and a new one erected. A pair of stone pillars was placed at the main entrance as well as a pair of iron gates. The Memorial Gateway was dedicated by Bishop E.S. REED, June 25th, 1961. (from the book ďPioneer Reminiscences of the Upper Ottawa ValleyĒ by Ernest Lloyd LAKE, BA, LTH, Rural Dean of Pembroke, 1967).
    [A photograph of the gates from 2023 is included on the front cover of the this book].

    The caretakers in 1990 were Garnet MUNDT and Harry LETT.
This secluded graveyard is situated high on the hill overlooking Eganville and the Bonnechere River. It is in a very quiet area, surrounded by mature trees and very well maintained. Just before reaching the traffic light at the foot of the hill in centre Eganville at the river, take Wallace Street up the hill to Raglin Street and turn right. The cemetery is at the end of Raglin.
