Currently Museum Strathroy-Caradoc is conducting research into the House of Refuge that was once located just west of Strathroy.

Below is a list of names found within the Burial Registry that was maintained by Middlesex County.  There were two plots located on the grounds of the Institution.  The first plot contains 88 interments.  It was opened in 1881 and closed in 1889

The second plot was located in the north west corner of the farm southward, commencing to number from northwest corner.  There are 88 interments in this plot.  It was opened in 1889 and closed in 1900.

Further research is being conducted to confirm whether or not there was a disinterment (move) of the two plots to a different location.  Each individual that is listed below is also being researched. Once information becomes available it will be added to the site.    Names listed below are how they appear in the registry book, by date of death, misspellings may have occurred.
