of Ponoka Cemeteries and Graveyards
|In the early days
of settlement, some loved ones who passed away were buried on the land
owned by their families. As churches were erected and graveyards consecrated,
these graves were often moved and permanent headstones placed, however,
some small family (and close friends) graveyards exist.
|This site includes information about
the history of County of Ponoka cemeteries, and where available, the names
of those buried in the graveyards. Additional information is available
