"Our deepest respect goes out to John Bezanson, Bill Bezanson and Leslie Saunders for all the time and effort they have put forth over the years."

Donations to the Cemetery
We want to say thank-you to everyone that helps!

We can now accept monetary donations. The cemetery will require a minimum of $3000.00 per year for mowing and clearing costs. We can give official income tax receipts since we are registered as an official charitable society with Revenue Canada.

To the surprise of some, there is no perpetual care fund for this cemetery and in order to complete our goals for the furure, we would like you to consider making a donation (if you have not already done so recently) on behalf of your loved ones who are at rest in the Burlington Cemetery. Please make cheques payable to:

Burlington Cemetery Society,
c/o Pat Kemp,
R.R. 5, Berwick, N.S.
B0P 1E0.
All donations can be used for income tax purposes and receipts will be issued.
