Of the 162 Sappers and Miners that worked on the canal, 22 died as a result of malaria and work related injuries. For the most part, they are buried here at Newboro. Of the remainder, 35 deserted, a low desertion rate for the day, and 71 took land grants offered by Colonel By, many of these becoming the first locksmasters of the Rideau locks.
