Dating to 1850 the King Christian Church Cemetery was the first burial ground in the Kettleby district. The first burial was in 1851 of Rachel Tatton (nee Walton) who died while the church was being built (see Heritage Map site 1). Her coffin was built in the church by the carpenters. The grounds were well chosen by the early settlers being situated on a most picturesque lot overlooking the Holland River Valley, Lake Simcoe and the hills of the Niagara Escarpment. Designated in 1986.
