Kirby Family Cemetery

The following is a transcription of the Kirby Family Cemetery located in Edgewood, British Columbia, Canada.

Historical Background

This cemetery is located on the former Kirby property to the east of the lower Arrow Lakes near Edgewood. It was the only cemetery in the area until the Edgewood Cemetery was developed in 1915. Most of the individuals buried here are relatives to the Kirby family.


There are believed to be at least seven burials here but only three stones are readable.

Driving Directions
