The Parish of Merrickville is an historic parish founded with Holy Trinity, Merrickville in 1829 and Christ Church, Burritt's Rapids in 1831.

Christ Church has a cemetery beside the church that has many stones dating back through our history.

Holy Trinity does not have a cemetery but is a member of the historic Merrickville Union Cemetery on the Burritt's Rapids Road just East of the Village of Merrickville on the South side of the river.
