Latitude: 43.285297, Longitude: -80.443139
Ayr Cemetery

Notes:
Stanley St., Ayr Village, North Dumfries Township, Waterloo Region, Ontario



Ayr Cemetery is run by a private company of interested shareholders and is a communty cemtery for southwestern North Dumfries, northwestern South Dumfries and northeast Blenheim. it sits on a hillside to the east of the village with a pleasant chapel attached. it is a very well kept and dominated by the many obelisks with which the more well-off families replaced their limestone individuals markers in the 1920's and 1930's.

The cemetery was founded in 1877, an early mention being in John Wyllie's letter to his brother-in-law in March of that year which mentioned a public meeting to select a site. the public cemetery would replace the several smaller local cemeteries, including the churchyards of Stanley Street and Knox churches and a number smaller burial grounds in the nearby countryside.
