This cemetery is located close to the west entrance of the village along 510 East. You can see the main section on the left side of the road, just as you cross the bridge over the Forteau River. About one hundred feet further you will see the two smaller sections.

This cemetery has three sections. The main section, has a chain link fence around it, and is still in use. The two older sections are each surrounded with a white picket fence, to protect the burials of the first settlers of English Point and those who were drowned at the wreck of the ship "HMS Lily" off Amour Point, Forteau.

In the early 1800s English Point was a little settlement of fishermen, who came from Devonshire, England. It is located on the east side of Forteau Bay, about 1 km of Forteau village and 20 km from Quebec/Labrador frontier, both Forteau and English Point share a community council.

I visited and read this cemetery in Oct of 2000. It includes all existing and legible stones and markers. There appear to be some unmarked.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
