Mount Zion United Cemetery

To reach this cemetery, begin at the intersection of Highway 2 & 53, east of Brantford, (Cainsville), there are traffic lights, travel south on Brant County Road #18 for several kilometres. You will come to an intersection with traffic lights. Turn left on to Brant County Road #4, a.k.a Cockshutt Road travel south for a few kilometres. Watch for a road sign indicating a left turn to Boston and Port Dover. Turn left at that intersection to follow Cockshutt Road which is now Brant County Road #44. You will enter Norfolk County and continue south on the Cockshutt Road which is now Norfolk County Road #5, through Boston, then be on the lookout for a golf course on your right and then watch for a road sign indicating Concession Road 14, Townsend. Turn right there and Mount Zion United Church is just a short distance on your left, the south side of Concession Road 14. The cemetery is beside the church.

It appears that this cemetery is under the jurisdiction of the Mount Zion United Church Board. It is inactive. It is very well maintained.

I walked this cemetery in September, 2006, reading and recording the inscription from each tombstone or grave marker that could be read, in order to complete the transcription process. A few of the stones were illegible.
