Historical Background

 

Blahodarovka (Blagodarnoye) Cemetery was established in 1899 by the Doukhobors of Blagodarnoye village near Veregin. After the abandonment of the village in 1920, the cemetery continued to be used by local Doukhobors until the 1950's. It is no longer in active use and is badly overgrown. It is privately owned.  

 

Layout

 

The cemetery is approximately one acre in size and is enclosed by a wire fence. There is dense scrub and brush throughout. The cemetery contains approximately 100 interments in a single section comprised of nine rows facing east-west. Over half the graves (82) have no marker, however, many of the mounds are still clearly visible. I have used death certificates and oral tradition to identify eighteen of these. The remaining 64 or so unmarked graves are unidentified. With respect to graves with markers, the markers are typically plain, upright marble or slate headstones.

Driving Directions

 

To access the cemetery, travel west from Veregin on Highway No. 5 for 1/2 a mile (.8 km). Then turn south on Secondary Route No. 637 for 3 1/2 miles (5.6 km). Turn west and continue on the gravel road for 1 1/4 miles (2.0 km). The cemetery is on the south side of the road allowance. This cemetery is on private property and permission to access should be obtained by the owners.
