Cheltenham Cemetery is located on the east side of Creditview Rd, north of King St.  It was est in 1847 when Charles Haines donated 1/4 acre for the burial of his nephew 3 year old Alfred Haines. Charles and his wife Ann donated a further 1/4 acre in 1863. Several generations of the Haines family are buried in this cemetery. 

This cemetery is still active and descendants of many of the settler families are still buried here.

  1. How do I get in contact with Boston Mills Cemetery, Caledon as am trying to locate the gravesite of James Dennison deceased 1869 and was an Elder of the Caesar Methodist Church. He arrived in this area about 1831 and lived on same location of this church Caesar Methodist Church. (or should say the church was located on a corner of his land location) and if you need it I will have to resend you the location. I believe that there is a United Church of Canada located there now or has been in recent years. Please will you contact me at and give me an address of who to contact and would possibly know who is all buried in the Boston Mills Cemetery. I was given the understanding that all of this family (Dennison) are buried there. Please reply, I am new at this game of the computer and am not sure how to use a Blog. Elaine
