Located at the corner of Route 134 and the Cocagne South Road, St. Albans Anglican Cemetery contains at least 90 interments. The exact number of interments is unknown because burials were not recorded between January 1879 and January 1886. The interments have been recorded on a large granite memorial. Saint Martins in the Woods Anglican Church of Shediac, Westmorland County, NB, erected the memorial in 1997. St. Albans along with St. Lawrence Anglican Church of Buctouche, Kent County, NB (c. 1865) were each at one time missions of Saint Martins in the Woods. The first burial at St. Albans Anglican Cemetery is recorded as 1836. The cemetery was used for burials for a little over a century. St. Albans Church and all headstones marking these burials are gone with the exception of the large memorial, four small individual monuments and a granite memorial for William Hanington & departed descendants. The Hanington Reunion Association placed this memorial in 1991. Interments have been listed in alphabetical order according to surnames along with the year of death and age of the deceased. Also included is a transcript of the exact inscriptions taken from the monuments. The memorial monument lists the interments in chronological order according to death date.

Anderson, Armstrong, Atkinson, Chandler, Colborne, Cormick, Cowfer, Crawford, Davenlaw, Elliott, Gamble, Hamilton, Hanington, Hannington, Harshman, Hayes, Hibbard, Howard, James, Johnston, Keirstead, Kelly, Kinnear, Livingston, Long, Lucas,
