Registered to Municipality of West Grey. Land donated by Archibald Butters. When he sold his farm to Angus Butters in 1878 he stated that a 1/2 acre was to be set aside as a burial ground.

When Ontario Hydro installed hydro lines that crossed the cemetery, it created a mess that obstructed many headstones. It was deemed too large of a mess to clean and the cemetery was left to "return to nature". In 1985 a restoration of the cemetery was started by the Stonehouse family. All the remaining stones were repaired and a fund was created to care for the cemetery.
