This cemetery is situated north of the village of Argyle in the Rural Municipality of Rockwood. Within the cemetery is a monument commemorating people who were killed during military service in the First World War and Second World War, and a monument erected in 1978 commemorates the original site of the Brant-Argyle Presbyterian Church (later Brant-Argyle United Church), which stood here from 1881 to 1952, and was moved to Argyle in 1952.
