From The Heritage of Lobo: "The Poplar Hill Cemetery is situated in Lot 4 Con 9 part of 200 acres first deeded to the Canada Company in 1832."

"No mention is made of the cemetery in the list of owners until 1862, however the first recorded burial, John McLellan, took place in 1841. First records of the cemetery are for the year 1857 when a meeting of plot holders was called to replace the three trustees."

"The newly appointed board of trustees were advised to purchased an additional acre of land, adjacent to the old burying ground, from Nathan McKay. In 1862 a deed was received for one acre."

"In 1924 land was added on the back and north sides for a driveway and a wire fence with cement gate posts was built. A section was set aside in the cemetery known as the 'potter's plots' for the burial of indigents and others who could not afford to buy a plot and burials in this section were not recorded."

In 1948 "another half acre was purchased from the McKay property."

After 1969 "a further two acres were purchased at the back of the property to be held in reserve."

"The cemetery is now the largest in the township, covering some four acres with two acres being held in reserve. While it is true that at one time most of those interred here were Baptists, the cemetery is non-denominational and many faiths are represented."
