The opening of St Aidan's Church at Chester, Sask occurred on 2 August 1903 at the farm of Mr. W. J. Carter
Regular services came to an end in 1929
During the 1930's blow dirt covered the early graves and as most were without stones and no plan seemed to exist the exact locations of burials were lost. The original cemetery reverted back to farmers field even though the bodies of the children were not relocated. This land is still owned by "The Synod of the Diocese of Fort Qu'Appelle"
A monument was put in the Rosedale Cemetery 22 October 1954 in memory of the children buried at St Aidan's Church Cemetery, Chester, Sask 1906-1912
In 1954 The old church building was moved to Regina where altered and added to it served a north side parish.
