Sharon Cemetery October 30, 2016

Located in Vulcan County south and east of Calgary. Everybody may have to be somewhere but we all eventually end up at the end of our journey. This is a truly forgotten spot. There is no sign or fence noting that there is a cemetery here. It is located at the crossroads of Range Road 270 and Township Road 174. If you drive by you can easily miss it as I have in the past. Across the road is a marker where Sharon School once stood.

There are eleven known graves here. I found three that are marked. It is very overgrown so it is a guess where everyone is located. The headstone for Tigner is the only one that stands out.

Found a headstone by chance buried in the undergrowth. The name is unreadable due to time and nature.


  1. Such a lonely spot. It may sound a bit weird, but I am always glad when you find these abandoned cemeteries. It is as though in the discovery, those people are not completely forgotten.

  2. Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust.
