Surprise United Cemetery

Surprise United Cemetery as it appeared in spring
this year.

This pioneer cemetery is located in the R.M of
Enterprise No. 142 near Richmound, Saskatchewan.
It is just east of the Alberta/Saskatchewan border in
a community formerly known as Horsham.  The
church that was on this site from the early to
mid twentieth century is now gone.

The wind blowing through the fresh green grass
didn't diminish the atmosphere of sadness at this
little graveyard.  This is a lonely place.

  1. It does look so sad, however the prairie grass is beautiful.

    1. It was a beautiful day that day. I've seen a lot of cemeteries but this one was a real tearjerker.
