The town of Constance is now Kinburn. I passed by this place at least fifty times over the years before seeing this partially hidden gem. WASP security for a few more weeks. Nicely renovated, repaired and taken care of. The cemetery board for Kinburn recorded minutes from 1857 to 1957. During the first meeting, a committee was formed to obtain funds and purchase a site for a graveyard in Kinburn..They purchased half an acre of land which would be open to anyone, without regard to creed, colour or religion. Space was to be set aside for strangers and people of indigent circumstances. The purchasers would be given first choice of the lots. The Constance Methodist Church [location just east] closed in 1967. In 1968 the cemetery council cleaned up the site and placed several large monuments, as well as a number of the older flat, white gravestones in a cement platform.
