The cemetery was the focal point of the battle, and the Battle of Lundy’s Lane Memorial is the most pronounced marker on the field. The beautiful Copper Beech Tree is another feature of the property, along with memorials and gravestones of various Canadian and American soldiers who fought in the Battle of Lundy’s Lane. The most famous individual buried in the cemetery is Laura Secord, whose exploits leading up to the Battle of Beaver Dams are known by most Canadians.
Burials in Drummond Hill Cemetery span from 1799 to the present, documenting the surrounding Village of Drummondville (named for the leader of the British and Canadian forces at the Battle, General Sir Gordon Drummond).
