Historical Background

 

Kapustino Cemetery was established in 1905 by the Doukhobors of Kapustino village near Veregin. After the abandonment of the village in 1920, the cemetery continued to be used by local Doukhobors until the 1940's. It is no longer in active use and is badly overgrown. It is privately owned.  

 

Layout

 

The cemetery is approximately half an acre in size and is unenclosed. There is dense scrub and brush throughout. The cemetery contains approximately 50 interments in a single section comprised of six rows facing east-west. Over half the graves (45) have no marker, however, many of the mounds are still clearly visible. I have used death certificates and oral tradition to identify six of these. The remaining 39 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 north from the junction of Highway No. 5 and the Village of Veregin Exit on gravel Secondary Route No. 637 for 7 3/4 miles (12.5 km). Then turn west and continue on the gravel road for 4 miles (6.4 km). Turn north and travel .4 miles (.7 km). The cemetery is on the west side of the road, approximately 550 yards (500 m) from the road allowance. This cemetery is on private property and permission to access should be obtained by the owners.
