Dundas Old Union Cemetery
Ancaster Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario, Canada

Osler Park, Ancaster Street
Dundas, Ontario

Contributed by Gloria Pare Jan 22, 2002 [gloriapare@sympatico.ca]. Total records = 198.

Dundas Old Union Cenetery was generally closed to burial in 1864, although there were still a few after, and went into complete disrepair.

In 1921 the cemetery was cleaned up and the few remaining monuments were mounted in a cairn that is still there today.

I read these monuments on 26 January 2001 and this is a record of those stones.

Entries followed by "*" were extracted from the Hamilton Branch OGS research notes on the Dundas Old Union Cemetery, not from the monument inscriptions. The entries also followed by a "?" indicate that no proof of burial has been found.
