St. Merryn Cemetery

Church and Cemetery of St Merryn Cornwall

In the years following World War II, many Canadian military members served with units of the British Military. As was the situation with the Canadians serving in continental Europe, there were deaths among its members - many from training accidents. The Canadian military members were buried in cemeteries throughout the United Kingdom, generally close to where they died.

St. Merryn is a village in the County of Cornwall located near the town of Padstow off of highway A389. The burial ground is situated next to the Church of St. Merryn, a church which was built in the 13th century and which today is still being used by its Anglican congregation.

The churchyard cemetery at St. Merryn is the resting place of Midshipman Winthrop Frederick Wood, Royal Canadian Navy.
