Historical Background

 

The Whitebeech Community Cemetery was established in 1918 by the settlers of the Whitebeech district of Saskatchewan. There are a large number of Doukhobor settlers as well as Ukrainian and English settlers buried there.  It is in active use and is owned and maintained by the municipality. The cemetery is in very good condition.

 

Layout

 

The cemetery is approximately two acres in size and is enclosed by a wire fence. There is a single iron gate on the north side. The cemetery contains 147 interments in a single section comprised of 11 rows facing east-west. I have used death certificates to identify 17 unmarked graves. There are considerable gaps between the marked graves which would suggest as many as 50 additional unmarked graves. 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 from Whitebeech, travel south on the gravel road for 6 miles (9.7 km). Then turn west and continue on the gravel road for 1/4 mile (.4 km). To access the cemetery from Arran, travel north on the gravel road for 5 1/2 miles (8.9 km). Then turn east and continue for 1/4 mile (.4 km). The cemetery is on the south side of the road allowance. This cemetery is open to the public.
