Coilbound Edition

This book includes transcriptions of the names and information engraved on all of the surviving gravestones in the Carp Presbyterian Cemetery, Concession III, Lot Part 12, Huntley Township, Carleton County, Ontario. The memorial stones were first transcribed in 1986, then an update was performed by Dolly Allen in 1998.

This land was originally donated and designated for a church which was never built. At some point, it was decided to use the land for a cemetery as there were already 2 Anglican cemeteries and a Methodist one in the area.

Most original burial records are gone and as consecutive caretakers took over the position, their records were not kept up to date with the result that there are many more burials than the records show and no one knows the names of the earlier deceased persons. While recording this cemetery in 1985, it had been printed when the caretaker, Mr. Paul, called Dolly Allen to see if she had found the small stones buried in the cedar hedge at the back of the property. Apparently, burials were made along the fence, then someone planted cedar trees between the graves which in time grew up to envelop the stones completely. Ms. Allen returned armed with pruning shears, flashlight and chalk and found 9 more stones which are included in this edition.

. The cemetery is located on Concession 3 (Regional Road #5) between Hwy. 417 (the Queensway) and Carp Village. It is well maintained with hay fields behind, and the Carp airport beside it.
