Historically, Ontario was divided into Counties and Districts. More recently, however, many of these names have been changed to reflect amalgamations of smaller communities into larger ones, or the 'growing up' of small towns into big cities and regional municipalities.

For simplicities' sake, I feel the Cemetery Subcategories should follow the current Census divisions, as outlined on Wikipedia.

There are 50 distinct divisions in the Province of Ontario, and hence, 50 subcategories.

For Carleton County, see Ottawa
For Dundas County, see Stormont
For Glengarry County, see Stormont
For Kent County, see Chatham-Kent
For Lincoln County, see Niagara Region
For Ontario County, see Durham Region
For Russell County, see Prescott & Russell
For Victoria County, see Kawartha Lakes
For Welland County, see Niagara Region
For Wentworth County, see Hamilton

Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid

In the late '90's, the genealogical societies took it upon themselves to transcribe gravestones from all of their local cemeteries. This database can be searched by first name, surname, cemetery, county or township. Note: While extensive, this database is not comprehensive of the entire province.

Ontario Cemeteries at Interment.com

Some select cemeteries across the province have been partially to fully transcribed. Most of this work seems to have been done in the late 1990's to early 2000's.
