Historical Background

 

Tambovka (Tombovka) Cemetery was established in 1902 by the Doukhobors of Tambovka village near Runnymede. After the abandonment of the village in 1920, the cemetery continued to be used by local Doukhobors. Located near Little Boggy Creek, it was sometimes also known as Little Boggy Cemetery. The cemetery is still in active use today. It is privately owned and maintained by a cemetery committee. The cemetery is in very good condition.  

 

Layout

 

The cemetery is one acre in size and is enclosed by a wire fence. There is a single iron gate on the west side. The cemetery contains 139 interments in a single section comprised of 11 rows facing east-west. Forty-nine of the graves have no marker and the mounds have been leveled. I have used death certificates and oral tradition to identify these. With respect to graves with markers, the markers are typically plain, upright marble, slate or concrete headstones.
