Oakland Pioneer Cemetery
Oakland Twp, Brant County, Ontario, Canada

Village of Oakland, Oakland Township,
Brant County, Ontario, Canada.

Contributed by Murray E. Fair, Nov 14, 2003 [murrayfair@rogers.com].
Total records = 158.

Located on the southwest corner of the main intersection (Brant Road # 24 & Brant Road # 4), a four way stop, in the village of Oakland.

This cemetery is inactive and has been for many years. It is under the jurisdiction of the Corporation of the County Of Brant. The tombstones have all been placed in two large semi circles and embedded in a concrete foundation. There is a large stone cairn that has been built near the original entrance to the cemetery. It contains a memorial plaque which reads:” In memory of THE PIONEERS, Oakland Township. These headstones are the only authentic record of burials in this cemetery. 1811 – 1941.”

I walked this cemetery on Sep 4th & 5th, 2003. These records were compiled from reading the inscriptions on the tombstones in this cemetery. A few of the stones are unreadable. There are records here, where it reads “no other details available” and that simply indicates that a portion of the original stone is missing.
