"Sleep on now,
and take your rest”
Greenwood Cemetery is like a beautiful park to some of us. It can tell us history lessons and of families. The trees and shrubs are colorful all year and we have faithful maintenance people who keep the grass mowed and the grounds in pleasing condition.
We invite you to take a walk in Greenwood Cemetery and find markers of friends, loved ones, and members of our community who have died. It is located in the eastern part of Shediac on Greenwood Drive, a short distance from Trinity United Church
The cemetery land was donated to the community by the Tait family, a founding family of Trinity United Church Shediac, and was inaugurated in 1888.
It is an interdenominational, non- profit cemetery. Tax receipts are available for donations. If you are thinking of full burial or cremation plots, they are available.
The contact people are Mrs. Violet Chappell (532-2793) and George Bateman (532-2991).
There is heritage value in the Greenwood Cemetery in the presence of the tombstones of many individuals who left their mark on local, provincial, and even international history, as well as contributing to the business, maritme commerce, municipal politics, and judicial fields. Among them are the tombstones of :
~ James Webster (1836-1906), boot and shoe manufacturer;
~ R. Chesley Tait (1857-1938), merchant ant exporter;
~ John Dickey (1833-1919), miller; and
~ William A. Russell (1853-1914), lawyer and probate judge.
~ John Friar (1847-1885), schooner captain, erected in his memory after he was murdered in New Guinea while trading with the indigenous people there. That tombstone is unique in Canada.
