Essex County Cemeteries
Click here to link to the map of cemeteries in Essex County in Google Maps (opens in a new window).
Names and locations of cemeteries are based on a list compiled by Ontario Ancestors (OA) and active Essex branch members.
Note that some locations are private property and permission must be obtained from the owner before entering.
Also, some locations may be former burial sites from which all remains and headstones have been relocated.
Many of the cemeteries located on the map above have been transcribed by volunteers. Some of those transcriptions are indexed below.
The EssexOA Transcriptions of Cemeteries in Windsor-Essex County are searchable PDF’s of indexes of Essex County cemeteries (Leamington, Kingsville, Harrow, Pelee, Maidstone, Amherstburg, Puce etc) transcribed. If you are a member of the Essex Branch of OA, full transcriptions are available for free on the Members Only site. Non-members may purchase the full transcriptions of the cemetery on our E-store. Alternatively, they are available on a “pay per view ” basis by contacting the researcher for the Essex Branch of the OA ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). The EssexOA publication collection includes all of these cemetery transcriptions and is currently located at the Windsor Public Library, 2nd Floor (WPL & the collection are moving June 2019).
