Historical Background

 

Slavanka (aka Slavianka) Cemetery was established in 1901 by the Doukhobors of Slavianka village near Blaine Lake. After the abandonment of the village in 1911, the cemetery continued to be used by Doukhobors living in the Slavanka School District No. 2279 (1912-1956) and is still in active use today.  It is privately owned and is maintained by a cemetery committee. The cemetery is in very good condition.

 

Layout

 

The cemetery is two acres in size and is enclosed by a wire fence. There is an iron gate on the east side. The cemetery contains approximately 100 interments in a single section comprised of five rows facing east-west. Approximately 34 of the graves have no marker and the mounds have been levelled. These remain 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.
