To reach this cemetery, begin at the intersection of Highway 2
& 53, east of Brantford, (Cainsville), there are traffic lights,
travel south on Brant County # 18 for several kilometres. You will
come to an intersection with traffic lights. Turn left on to Brant
County Road # 4, a.k.a. Cockshutt Road, travel south for a few kilometres.
Watch for a road sign indicating a left turn to Boston & Port Dover,
turn left at that intersection to follow Cockshutt Road which is
now Brant County Road # 44. You will enter Norfolk County. Continue
on the Cockshutt Road which is Norfolk County Road # 5. Continue
on through Boston and be on the lookout for a road sign indicating
Concession Road # 13, turn left and head east on Concession Road
# 13, You will come to the junction of Concession Road # 13 and
the Villa Nova Road. Mount Hope - Tyrell cemetery is situated on
the northwest corner of that intersection.
This cemetery is inactive and has been for many years. The stones
have all been moved to a central location in the cemetery and
placed in a concrete slab. It is maintained by the County of Norfolk.
I walked this cemetery in September, 2006, reading and recording
the inscription from each tombstone that could be read, in order
to complete the transcription process.
