This group of Norwegian Lutherans held their services in the rural Industry and Melba schools, their pastors would come from Medicine Hat, Alberta. Some of the members were: Charles Rollefstad, Sigrid Hanson, Nels Olsen, Hilmer Rollefstad and Felix Arlington. Some of the pastors were: Mickleson, Branser, Walker, Arneson and Norstad. The records for this cemetery have been misplaced. The plot of land for the cemetery was donated by Charlie Nordin. The plot is located two miles west, two miles south and one half mile east of Schuler, Alberta, on the north side of township road 160. This is about a four acre plot, enclosed with a tall carrigana hedge and a broken down fence, the grass has not been cut in years. There are a few legible markers in one corner, one must look closely to find them. The community has erected a stone monument listing all those interred here, but only lists year of death. This monument is surrounded with a steel pipe fence to keep cattle from rubbing on it. This cemetery is known by some as the “Government Cemetery” as it was supposedly used to inter folks who did not belong to any religious denomination.
