Historical Background

 

Pakrowka (aka Pokrovka) Cemetery was established in 1899 by the Doukhobors of Pokrovka village near Langham. After the abandonment of the village in 1920, the cemetery continued to be used by local Doukhobors. Located in the Henrietta School District, it also came to be known as Henrietta Cemetery. The cemetery is still in active use today and is in very good condition. It is privately owned and maintained by a cemetery committee.  An adjoining cemetery on the southwest end, known as Little Pakrowka Cemetery, was established in 2002 to serve the Osatchoff family.

 

Layout

 

The cemetery is two acres in size and is enclosed by a wire fence. There is a single iron gate on the east side. The cemetery contains 221 interments in a single section comprised of six rows facing east-west. Approximately 90 of the graves have no marker and the mounds have been levelled. I have used death certificates and oral tradition to identify 9 of these. The remaining 81 unmarked graves are unidentified. With respect to graves with markers, the markers are typically plain slate, marble or concrete upright headstones or flat markers set flush to the ground. Click here for an online cemetery map.

 

Driving Directions

 

To access the cemetery, travel west from the Town of Langham on Highway No. 16 for 6 1/2 miles (10.5 km). Turn south on the Cee Pee Grid (Range Road No. 3085) and continue for 3 1/2 miles (5.6 km). Turn west on Township Road No. 390 and continue for 5 miles (8.1 km). Then turn north on Pakrowka Creek Road (Range Road No. 3094) and continue for 1/2 mile (.8 km). The cemetery is on the west side of the road allowance. This cemetery is on private property and permission to access should be obtained by the owners.
