This is one of two concrete arch bridges in this cemetery. Visit the other bridge's page here.
This bridge features railings that fancier than the other bridge, plus the curve of the deck has an arch to it that is not parallel to the arch of the bridge itself. This bridge could be considered the more visually elaborate of the two bridges. The bridge also is in slightly poorer condition, with a few of the railing balustrades having been replaced, as some patching visible on the deck. However the bridge is reported to be constructed in 1935, the same year as the other bridge.
These two bridges together add greatly to the beauty and heritage of the cemetery grounds. Concrete arch bridges do not appear to be present in any notable quantity in this area of Ontario, so these bridges have a fair amount of significance.
