Biographical history

The Malvern Cemetery Company owns and manages Malvern Cemetery situated on Moulton Hill Road in Lennoxville.

On the 3rd of November 1869, a public meeting was held at Lennoxville Town Hall with the purpose of discussing the prospects of establishing a public cemetery. At this meeting it was decided to establish a public protestant cemetery. Parcels of land - 8.5 acres - were purchased in 1870, 1871, and 1872. The cemetery was divided up into 4 blocks of 80 lots each and as decided at the first meeting each lot shall be large enough to contain 8 graves.
