Historical Background

 

Novo-Pokrovka Cemetery was established in 1907 by the Doukhobors of Novo-Pokrovka village. After the abandonment of the village in 1910, the cemetery continued to be used by local Doukhobors until the 1940's. It is no longer in active use. In the 1990's, it was partially destroyed and is now partially under cultivation. Efforts have recently been made to delineate the original site by fence posts. The cemetery is privately owned.  

 

Layout

 

The cemetery is approximately half an acre in size and is enclosed by corner fence posts. The cemetery contains 28 interments in a single section comprised of four rows facing east-west. The majority of graves (26) have no marker and the mounds have been leveled. For these, I have used the cemetery register and death certificates to identify the interments. The two grave markers are plain, upright marble and slate headstones. Click here for an online cemetery map.

 

Driving Directions

 

To access the cemetery, travel west from Veregin on Highway No. 5 for 1/4 mile (.5 km). Turn north on Tolstoi Road and continue for 2 1/2 miles (4 km). Then turn east and continue on the gravel road for 1/2 mile (1 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.
