Notes about the burial ground

Westwold is a small settlement in the southern interior of British Columbia. A small farming and logging community, it is located between Kamloops and Vernon on Highway 97. The original name for the community was “Grande Prairie” but was changed to Westwold in 1928. St Luke’s Church and Cemetery was established in 1898 although a few of the monuments show burial dates before this time. It is still in use today. The cemetery is located on the southwest side of Highway 97 and toward the southeast end of Westwold. The grounds are very well tended, tidy, and enclosed by a chain link fence. Although established on flat land, mountains surround the area on all sides. Highway 97 adjoins the cemetery to the northeast, an elementary school adjoins to the northwest and farm land is located to the remaining two sides.
