We would love to have more information on the cemeteries of Chatham Kent. If you can provide us with further information on any cemetery, please contact ... John at CKCemeteries.ca ... (@ sign removed to help prevent spam.)

Please note that there are endless single graves and small cemeteries scattered everywhere throughout the County as there are in all other counties. Those buried from a passing canoe going down the river or a train down the tracks, or a stage coach down the road. They are everywhere. They can never all be found now. Most all of those are lost forever, never to be found again!

Zone Township

Battle of the Thames There may be three MAIN burial areas on the Battle of the Thames Battle Site still detectable. Two are quite close together, and are very close to the monument. One of those two seems to contain ABOUT 8 shafts, and one seems to contain contain ABOUT 18. These MAY be burial sites for American, and for British and Canadian. There is also indication of one possible further cemetery with about 72 shafts. 16 of them are Children. Since there are no empty spaces, an educated guess here points to these being moved from somewhere else. There seems to have also been some other burials on the site. We caution that some of these could well be native so this should be treated as a "Native burial ground" until/unless proven otherwise. There are quite likely MANY burials on this site, and we should remember that when visiting it! Sites lost and unmarked. Caution - found by dowsing only. Well kept
