Willowbank Cemetery

Peaceful and serene, Old Willowbank Cemetery contains the remains of many of the oldest inhabitants from this area. Only the now closed Old Burying Ground is older.

The 13-acre cemetery on Gaspereau Avenue was started in 1882.

Willowbank Cemetery was begun over a decade before the town was incorporated. It was set up by a number of the town fathers on nine acres of land donated by J.W. Barss and then increased in size.

The cemetery was incorporated in 1916 and then again in 1923 due to changes in the act. From Wolfville’s civic history called ‘Mud Creek’, which was collected back in 1980, the citizens of Wolfville believe: A cemetery is made up of people and their relationships to one another, and each gravestone in a cemetery has a story.
 

A cemetery is made up of people and their relationships to one another, and each gravestone in a cemetery has a story.


Many local residents seek out family genealogy and look for the headstones of their ancestors in Willowbank Cemetery. The site also provides a much beloved passive recreation spot or greenspace.

Interest has also been growing in green burials, which are a kind of return to age-old practices. Willowbank records include three such burials in recent history.
