Colorful mosaic of Chinese dragon

The Ashcroft Chinese Cemetery was developed by the CPR over 100 years ago with 49 visible grave sites. The first Chinese burial in the public cemetery (end of Railway) seems to have taken place in the early 1940’s. Prior to that all Chinese seem to be buried in the cemetery, or their bodies shipped back to China. Some were also probably exhumed and sent back to China, a custom that was practiced at the time. In 2005 the Ashcroft/Cache Creek Rotary and Ashcroft and District Lions took on the task of cleaning the graveyard up.
