According to the Commission on Preservation of Jewish Heritage, the cemetery was established in the latter half of the 19th century.
There is no information about the Jewish community of Yakymivka and today, there is no Jewish population in the town.
The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. The cemetery could not be found marked on old maps of the region. The oldest gravestone dates to the late 19th century. It can therefore be assumed that the cemetery was founded during that period. Today, the site is used for cattle grazing.
