History information

Peterborough is the county town of Peterborough County, and lies north-east of Toronto. During the 1939-1945 war there was a Canadian Army Basic Training Centre here. This was originally a training centre of the Non-Permanent Active Militia (roughly the equivalent of the Territorial Army of the United Kingdom) but was twice re-designated, becoming finally No. 32 Canadian Army Medical Corps (Basic) Training Centre. This cemetery is on the south-eastern shore of Little Lake, and contains war graves of both world wars. There are 27 burials of the 1914-1918 war. The 1939-1945 war burials number 15.
