To reach this cemetery, begin at Brantford, on King George Road which becomes Highway #24, travel north to Osborne Corners, where there are traffic lights. Turn onto Highway #99, a.k.a. as Governor Road, and travel east to the village of Lynden. At the all way stop intersection, turn left onto Lynden Road and travel through the village and continue north several kilometres. Turn right onto Highway #8 and travel east a few kilometres, watch for the road sign indicating a left turn into the village of Rockton onto Old Highway #8. Travel east through the village and watch for the Rockton Cemetery on the north side of Old Highway #8, the main thoroughfare of Rockton.

This cemetery appears to be inactive as there are no recent burials recorded there. As far as I could ascertain it is under the direction of Friends of Saint Alban Church, Rockton, Ontario. The grass is kept mowed. A few older stones have suffered some vandalism

I walked the cemetery in March, 2010, reading and recording the inscription from each monument or grave marker that I was able to read. A few very old stones I was unable to read as they are in poor condition.
