Cemetery Association

General Overview

The Gabarus Cemetery Association is located in the pristine village of Gabarus, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. It was formed on January 26, 1995 and incorporated later on that year on March 21, 1995. The main purpose of this Association is for the management and ongoing day-to-day operation of it cemeteries.

This is strictly a non-profit, volunteer organization whose members from the Gabarus community at large. Records are kept in accordance with provincial tax laws governing all incorporated companies and recorded by the secretary and financial officer. They are in turn subject to an independent audit once a year.

The Association meets formally a minimum of twice a year, once in the spring and once in the winter. All other meetings are held on an as-needed basis. Throughout the year, work parties are formed to do any major maintenance work.

We have found it necessary to implement policies to better manage the Association and subsequently provide improved service and overall beautification of the cemeteries. They are outlined below.

Please find the whole Association profile here.

We now have our cemetery plots on Facebook.  To access it simply go to Facebook Then look for the magnifying glass (“search” )and type in a name.

We will subsequently map it from the air this spring using a drone and then associate the tombstones with a number. i.e. # 1 Raymond Sutherland, # 2 Herb & Elaine Reid. This will show plots filled as well plots purchased and empty plots for sale. This will enable anyone to find a site at a glance.
