Directions

While driving north along Highway 169, turn right onto Gordon Street which is located on the north side of the Bala Fall's bridge. Turn left onto Kitchener Street and you will find the cemetery on the left hand side where the street turns right.

Word of Warning! Do not drive down the incline leading into the cemetery. The incline is steep and made up of loose soil. You will have a difficult time trying to back out.

This is a private family burial site located in Bala, along the edge of Muskoka Lake. The cemetery is somewhat overgrown with bushes but appears to still be in use. I found one recent interment dated 1997.

Disclaimer! The following interments was taken from the book, "These Our Ancestors Were" which was printed in 1974. There are several errors in the book and does not show any burials after 1974. The following listing is only as accurate as the printed book and has not been updated since 1974.
