Drummond Hill Cemetery, Niagara Falls Ontario
Drummond Hill Cemetery is located on Buchner Place off Drummond Rd. - Lundy’s Lane is on north side of cemetery.
Drummond Hill Cemetery named in honour of General Drummondis, is a nationally recognized heritage site. Known as the battle grounds of the "Battle of Lundy’s Lane", as well as the burial site of Laura Secord. In 1799 Christopher Buchner purchased 400 acres of land from his father-in-law, James Forsythe. Christopher used the top of the hill as a burial ground. It later became the site of a fierce battle between the British and the Americans in 1814.
Battle of Lundy’s Lane - July, 1814 ~
Led by Sir Gordon Drummond on the British side and General Jacob Jenning Brown on the American side, the fiercest battle of the War of 1814 took place at Drummond Hill. 876 British and Canadian soldiers as well as 861 American soldiers were killed, wounded or captured.
Laura Secord Monument ~
One of the most famous females in Canadian history, Laura Secord is best known for her involvement in the War of 1812 - 1814 when she walked over 20 miles to inform the British of an impending attack by the Americans.
Soldier’s Monument ~
A battle memorial was created by the Canadian Parliament and unveiled by the Lundy’s Lane Historical Society on July 25th, 1895. The large cairn marks the remains of 22 British soldiers who were buried in the vault below it. Three bronze plaques bearing the names of those killed in the Battle of Lundy’s Lane were added to the monument in 1938.
This is a few graves that I took photos of, or made note of when I was in the cemetery a few years back.
