Welcome to Elmwood Cemetery. Elmwood Cemetery is owned and operated by The Perth Cemetery Company, a not-for-profit organization and a registered Canadian charity. The company which was incorporated in 1872 is governed by an active volunteer Board of Directors. We are located in the Town of Perth, Lanark County, Ontario and we are the only operating cemetery within the Town of Perth. Our property encompasses forty two acres of which about fifteen acres are presently used for interments. While Elmwood was originally founded as the Anglo-Protestant cemetery for the general Perth area it has expanded many decades ago to serve all area residents without consideration for their cultural or religious backgrounds.
