Information Announcement about

St. John Cemetery

August 17, 2021


Dear Friends of St. John’s:


The year 2020 and 2021 have been challenging for all mankind due to the Coronovirus.

We had hoped to have a fall Memorial Service where we, once again, could gather to celebrate the memories of those buried at St. John’s.  Due to increased numbers, we feel that this is not the time for a gathering at St. John’s Cemetery.


The cemetery continues to be a beautiful place to walk through thanks to the regular upkeep from the maintenance company.   A cemetery of this size, costs thousands of dollars, yearly, to keep it looking respectable. The grass is cut weekly, along with necessary weed control, tree trimming, driveway upkeep and anything else to keep the cemetery in the condition that is pleasing to each and every one of you, when you come to visit.


Your generous donations, enable us to sustain this property and be proud of the grounds our relatives are resting in.  We continue to ask for your support and your money will be used, exclusively, for the upkeep of the Cemetery



You can send a cheque to the following:

St. John’s Anglican Church Cemetery

P.O Box 807

Tottenham, Ontario

L0G 1W0


You can also send an e-transfer which can be done online through your banking facility

Send the e-transfer to:

When asked to set up a security question and answer, please make sure your answer

is “cemetery”.    That enables me to retrieve your donation

Also, please note that tax receipts will be sent to you for your tax year of 2021.


If you need to get in touch with us, please feel free to give us a call at 905-936-9601

or email at


Thank you for your support and hopefully we will be able to meet at a later time.
