Directions

From Highway 169, travel to Torrance which is 5 km south of Bala. Turn south onto Kilworthy Road, Highway 13. The road is rough and winding. The cemetery is located 12.5 km from Torrance on the west side of the road. The cemetery can also be approached from Highway 11. If you are travelling south along Highway 11, turn west onto Highway 19, Biers Road, about 6 km south of Gravenhurst. If you are travelling north along Highway 11, take the Sedore Road exit about 12.5 km north of Severn Bridge and follow it to Highway 19. Highway 19 will eventually meet up with Highway 13. The cemetery is approximately 18.5 km from Highway 11.

The church that is currently standing was built in 1935 to replace the original building that was built in 1924. It was built by the local people of Southwood through voluntary work. Both the cemetery and church appear to be still in use by the presence of fresh flowers and a padlock on the door which didn't show any signs of rust.
