Lakeview Cemetery was associated with a Baptist church, which stood in or beside the cemetery property. This church was organized at a meeting on August 20, 1842, when it was decided to form a new congregation because of the great number of new members at the Bayham (Port Burwell) Baptist church. There were 78 members, and meetings were held in a schoolhouse about a mile from where the church was eventually built in 1849, on lot 32, concession 1. The land for the church and burying ground was given by the Northrup family. The church was called Jubilee Church of Malahide. A split in the congregation occurred due to differences, and in 1870 the Berean Baptist church was formed, its followers erecting a church on lot 30, concession 3. In 1894, the Berean congregation was persuaded to join once again with Jubilee, and the name of the church was changed to Lakeshore Calvary Baptist.

In 1909 it was decided to built a new church, and the former Jubilee church was moved across the road in 1910 and used until the new church was built. At this time, the name of the church was changed from Lakeshore Calvary to Lakeview Baptist Church. The cornerstone was laid on June 2, 1910, and the building was dedicated on December 18, 1910. The church was torn down in 1980.
Several of the stones have been placed on a concrete pad within the cemetery. These have been noted in the revision of this transcription.Use your browser’s “Find in Page” command in the browser menu to locate your surname in the file below.1. Grey granite on double granite base –
