To find this cemetery, follow route 116 from  Richmond to Danville. At the lights at the junction of routes 116 and 255, turn left (North) on route 255. After passing a couple of sharp corners watch for a road on your left called St. Felix de Kingsey. Take this road and you will go up a steep hill. Continue until you see Claremont Road branching off to the left. The cemetery is a short distance on this road.

This old burial ground high on Claremont Hill with its spectacular view is the final resting place of some of Shipton Township's earliest settlers, some of whom were United Empire Loyalists. It dates from 1804 when most of this area was a wilderness. Some church records refer to this burial ground as Nutting's Hill Cemetery. At one time the cemetery was in disrepair and used as pastureland but in 1940 Nelson Andrews and George Philbrick started a restoration project and now it is in great shape and there have been some recent burials. There is a fence and gate and it is kept regularly mowed. In 1966 Nelson and Elgie Andrews compiled a list of burials from the tombstones. I have compared this list to what we found in 2016 and any names which appeared on the list and are not legible today are shown with an asterisk (*). There are quite a few graves marked with initialed slabs, and some other monuments are just not legible today so there will never be a complete listing of those interred here.

Susan Nutbrown, and I last visited and photographed this cemetery in October 2016.
