Such History
Sep. 2021 • Friends
There’s so much history in cemeteries and this one is no different. I absolutely loved seeing such old headstones. It was so incredible to see some that were so old that they were worn to the point that the writing was faded and illegible. If you’re heading to the garden make a quick pit stop here!

Beautiful, well kept place of rememberance
Aug. 2019
We were actually staying a few yards away at Shining Waters cottages, and had no clue why all the Asian tourists were congregating at the corner.. it was only when walking about a weekday evening we happened to see the sign and realized this was the Resting Place of LM Montgomery. No crowds.. place to ourselves... cemetery grounds beautifully kept, flowers on the famous graves, and tombstones that you could read, some very old. There was even a watering can and tap for you to fill up and water the flowers if you wanted.

LM Montgomery’s Grave
Jul. 2019 • Couples
A paved walkway leads from the cemetery entrance, past the markers for Montgomery’s mother and maternal grandparents. It ends at a subdued marker for the author and her husband. Pleasant site for fans.

Final Resting Spot
Jul. 2019 • Family
We're huge fans of the Anne of Green Gables series so wanted to stop and visit Lucy Maude Montgomery's final resting spot. Once you walk through the gates, go to the right & you'll see the 2 small trees and garden of red flowers.

Lucy's Resting Spot
Aug. 2018 • Family
Lucy Maud Montgomery's final resting spot in just around the corner from Green Gables park. Her grave is easy to find. Follow the path from the arched gateway, or look for (real only) flowers.

Tranquil place of reflection
Aug. 2018 • Family
It was a surreal experience to walk along the pathway that led to L.M. Montgomery's final resting place and to hear the waves from the nearby ocean that was so dear to her. Having read her journals, it was obvious that PEI held her heart, despite her time in Ontario.

Definitely a stop along the tour for any true Anne-fan to place respect the woman whose creativity imagined the character we all know and love.

Remembering Anne of Green Gables
Jul. 2018 • Friends
As part of visiting Green Cables Heritage Place, my sister and I went to Lucy Maud Montgomery's final resting place. It was fitting that this author is so close to the special place she memorialized in her classic tales of Anne of Green Gables. She was inspired by the homestead and wrote about her early life and formative years in this beautiful and natural setting. She preserved the look and feel of an earlier time in Canadian history. While in the cemetary, we hunted for and located a geocache at one of its perimeters.

Go if you’re an LMM fan
Jul. 2018 • Friends
You only need 10 minutes or so to visit here unless you want to walk around the other gravesites. To the right as you walk in there’s a small marker pointing out the gravesites of LMMs mother and grandparents, Her own gravesite is to the far left, marked by two little trees and bright red flowers. We were there about 10:30 and were the only people there.

LM Montgomery's resting place and lots of history
Jul. 2018 • Family
It's a cemetery so the big draw here is LM Montgomery's grave. There are always flowers and the occasional note or poem brought by fans from all over the world. The gravestones are old and history buffs may find them interesting.

Resting Place of LM Montgomery
Aug. 2017 • Couples
While it might seem somewhat strange or even macabre to review a cemetery, the Cavendish Cemetery merits at least a brief comment because of its historical significance. What is its claim to fame? Well, the large iron arch proclaims that the cemetery is the resting place of LM Montgomery, the famed authoress of the world-renowned “Anne of Green Gables” series. As such, the cemetery is historic to the country’s literary and cultural history and it is an important site of pilgrimage for fans of “Anne.” In fact, that’s the reason we visited the site – it was the perfect conclusion to our literary and historical “Anne of Green Gables Journey.” We began the day by visiting LM Montgomery’s birthplace, moved on to the Anne of Green Gables Museum to see and experience the site that gave her inspiration and then, after a brief snack treat stop at the Cavendish Boardwalk where we picked up some “Anne of Green Gables Chocolates,” we concluded our adventure here – at the cemetery. From a practical perspective, it made for the perfect book-end to this part of our journey, having explored LM Montgomery’s life and literary magnum opus from birth to death. Her grave, much like the rest of the cemetery, is beautifully maintained. In short, if you’re a fan of the ANNE books, then this is indeed a “must stop.”
