The Fairview, Bethel and Myrtle cemeteries serve as the final resting place for many of the original settlers of the Roland district. Multiple groups of pioneers came from several townships in Eastern Canada and so brought to the Roland district pre-established familial, and communal ties. Over time, marriages between these families as well as others who chose to make this area their home resulted in a deeply rooted, close knit community.

The burial records found on this website are not limited to tombstone inscriptions, they reflect the information available from the records of each cemetery. It is acknowledged that despite every effort some burials may never be identified. A database has been included identifying wherever possible the names of the parents of the deceased and, if applicable, any spouse or children. Common ancestors are also included so relationships between those interred may be traced.
