Long Lake Cemetery, Sudbury, Ontario, Canada


The cemetery plot was purchased from Crown, June 15th 1933.

The land (Parcel 6078 S.E.S.) is accessed over Parcels 3317 (Hautamaki Est.) and Parcel 25851 (Pagnutti Dev.) approx. 1 km. from Hw. 17 due West on Long Lake road and approx. 1650 feet from Long Lake road. The rectangular 2-acre lot is about 275 x 400 feet. Surveyed September 7th, 1929 and patented July 8, 1933 to the then trustees: Kaarlo Nissila, Alexander Majava and Gabriel Lindgren, all deceased. There is existing roadbed that was originally built by local road board. The Cemetery was built in anticipation Long Lake road using more Southerly approach (close to the Cemetery itself).

Earliest recorded burial was that of Mrs. Anna Kantokoski (Koivula) March 6, 1930, and the last known burial took place September 1989 that of Arne Kinnune's ashes. As no records exist because the records were burned accidentally, anecdotal list of names was used to estimate the number of burials, which at the moment are approximately 35. Known number of obituaries from various sources gives closer to 50 as the actual burials.

Year 2001 January legal right to cross over the private lands was obtained by the Sudbury Finnish Historical Society.

Bushes obscure headstones and crosses marking graves. There are no markers to identify all of the graves.

The trustees named for the Long Lake Cemetery year 2000 are Toivo Lain, John Saari and Arnold Niemiaho of Sudbury Finnish Historical Society.
