Comments: This village was established in 1905. With the help of Abram G. Janzen of Blumenheim who used to live adjacent to the cemetery, it was determined that approx. 30 people had been buried here. There are only 4 legible markers, that of Mr. Janzen's grandparents and his infant son and a Mr. Harder. The cemetery lies next to the South Saskatchewan River about 2 miles east of Renfrew School yard. It is not accessible by car and is over grown with high grass. It has a barb wire fence around it.
