Westbrook Cemetery
Cainsville, Brantford Township, Brant County, Ontario, Canada

Contributed by Jim Spence, Feb 10, 2009, last edited Apr 21, 2009 [jspence1@ymail.com]. Total records = 39.

To reach this cemetery take Hwy 2/53 East from Brantford, turn right (south) onto Shaver Street, go 500m. Enter on left side of road, passing the sewage lagoons on the right side, continue up the hill to the cemetery entrance.

This cemetery is currently inactive. It's under the jurisdiction of the Corporation of the County of Brant. The grass is kept cut, but the main entrance off Shaver St. has a No Trespassing sign on the gate to keep people out of the sewage lagoons beyond. I have checked with the County officials, and entrance to the cemetery is however permitted.

These records were compiled from information visible on all tombstones in the cemetery that were legible on Aug 24, 2002. There are, however, some stones which have either been worn smooth by time or never originally inscribed.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
