Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. George’s Anglican Cemetery / Westbourne Cemetery (Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone)

A monument near the entrance to this cemetery in the Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone describes its history. Consecrated on 24 September 1861, it was the most western extension of the Church Missionary Society situated in the White Mud River Settlement near the “First Crossing.” Bishop Anderson named this mission “Westbourne” after their first Anglican missionary, the Reverend John West. Parish Lot No. 9 also included the church mission, parsonage, and school.
