Glenwood Cemetery is rich in history and beauty

glenwoodGlenwood Cemetery Company is an active cemetery located in a large, well groomed, park-like setting just two blocks off Main Street in Picton. It offers complete cemetery services including Burials, plots, Columbarium Niches, and a Scattering Ground. Professionally Trained Staff will assist you with the planning of your perpetual care needs and those of your loved ones.

The cemetery was incorporated in 1873 and is operated by a Volunteer Board of Directors. The Annual General Meeting is held every June in the Stone Chapel, everyone is welcome.

One of the most beautiful and historic cemeteries in Ontario with its 62 acres of rolling hills, majestic mature forests, and winding roads, Glenwood is typical of the Victorian age and remains largely unchanged since its 19th century origins. Historic Walking Tours of the grounds are offered on Saturday evenings during July and August.

Glenwood Cemetery is a rich but generally unrecognized resource of local and national History. An ongoing project involves the transferal of some 12,000 to15,000 Burial Records to an electronic database. This is significant for anyone who is searching for ancestors with connections in the area.

There is something of interest in Glenwood for residents and visitors to Prince Edward County.

Please stop by to explore the grounds.
