Bethesda Lutheran Cemetery, located at 9423 Kennedy Road, just north of 16th Avenue, has served the Markham Community since 1803.  Bethesda Lutheran Church was originally located on this site until 1910 when it was moved to its present location at 20 Union Street.

The Cemetery provides attractive tree lined Lutheran burial grounds with both full sized plots for casket burials and smaller plots for cremation burials. It is administered by a volunteer Board of Directors appointed by the church and operates under the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act of the Province of Ontario.  In 2015 the cemetery consecrated new property to double its size.

For more information or to purchase plots please contact us.

New by-laws for the cemetery have been approved by the Registrar of the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002.  To see a copy of these new by-laws, click here.
