Church / Denomination: The first St Peter's chapel was dedicated 7 July 1802.. Non-denominational (Maple Leaf) & Roman Catholic (St Anthony's).

Maple Leaf Cemetery is registered to Municipality of Chatham-Kent. St Anthony's Cemetery is registered to R.C.E.C. of Diocese of London. First recorded burial was in July 1802.

From Dennis G Charron: Although the Cemetery has both St Anthony's (Catholic denomination) and Maple Leaf (Protestant denomination) it was initially Maple Leaf and is noted as Maple Leaf in all legal matters. Apparently the St Anthony Church had bought some land many years after the cemetery opened as Maple Leaf.

From History of the Parish of St Peter's, Supplementary by Rev. Father A.F. Scalisi, Sept. 30, 1945 (Courtesy of Tom Vella-Zarb): "The cemetery boasted a few stones as monuments as some 30-odd pine trees had been planted in a double row, cross fashion, through-out. The effect was nice but not thought practical as the roots would penetrate into graves. Almost every grave was an elevated mound. All of this obviously made it impossible to keep the grass cut. Twice a year, prior to my coming, a 'bee' was called for men with scythes to come and level the tall grass. The cemetery, therefore, was somewhat unsightly and quite undignified. In the fall of 1945, men came in response to an appeal, and, with a bull-dozer, every tree and mound disappeared and the debris cleared. The ground was then ploughed, weeded and further levelled. Finally in the Fall grass was sown and the large wooden cross was given a coat of aluminum paint. Later, when the grass is full and the ground firm, monuments will be straightened and markers placed at each grave or plot of graves."
