A cache in the OpenCaching Cemetery Directory (OCD) Series. To add a cache to this series, simple follow this naming convention:
OCD State/Province - Cemetery Name (Township or Community Name)
Please provide some detail about the cemetery in your cache description, and please paste this note at the start of the description. Lets see how many states and provinces we can get to go OCD. Please respect any local laws regarding cache placement. If your state or local cemetery does not allow cemetery caches, then don't do it. Please be respectful anytime you are in a cemetery.
I will create and maintain a list of all the OCD caches, soon. For a list of all OCD caches, click HERE.
Farnham Cemetery is a pioneer country cemetery (the oldest grave with records is dated 1837) located near the hamlet of Arkell, a bit south-east of the City of Guelph. Although the city is steadily creeping towards the cemetery and may surround it in the next 10-20 years. The cache is not hidden in the active cemetery but in a back lot that has recently been donated to the cemetery and is currently planted in pine and spruce trees. The cache is hidden in one of those (a soruce), a couple feet off the ground.
The history of the cemetery (and area in general) is nicely presented here: https://farnhamcemetery.wordpress.com/history/
