This is a quaint, small-town cemetery that happens to be the burial site of a world-famous author. It is very well maintained and they have L.M. Montgomery's headstone specially landscaped. Many of her relatives are also buried there.

It seems that everywhere or everything that Lucy M Montgomery touched, dead or alive, it labelled as such in PEI. Its a nice cemetery but not much of a claim to fame.

This place tries to tie into the Anne of Green Gables fever by making LM Montgomery's tombstone fairly prominent, but there is in fact little to see here. It will get packed at certain times of the year though with tourists, around the one tombstone.

We wandered through the Cavendish Cemetery just wondering if any of our relatives were buried there and we happened upon Lucy Maude Montgomery's grave site. They have really looked after this cemetery.

If you find cemeteries interesting, this is a good place to go. You can see the family names that repeat throughout Cavendish, plus LM Montgomery. Symbolism and phrases on the old stones are interesting, plus the stylistic changes as you move though history.

Being huge fans of LM Montgomery, we always go to her grave to pay our respects to her. Her grave is easy to find and is well maintained. If you are a big fan of her work, visit her grave to say thank you to...More

This small cemetery is the location of the grave of LM Montgomery. She grew up almost a stone throw away from this cemetery although she was born in a house a few miles away.

Very interesting for my 8 year old daughter who has never set foot in a cemetery before today and was fascinated by the old headstones and stories behind some of them. Worth seeing the, final resting place of LMM.

We came to see L.M. Montgomery's resting place and easily spent an hour walking around to read the gravestones. This is lovely and well-kept.

I found myself thinking how sad it was for Montgomery to be so far away from "her Island" for most of her adult years, but happy to know that she is at peace and rest here.
