The town of Waterville is located about half way between Lennoxville and North Hatley. Take route 143 south from Lennoxville. There are several small roads that lead to Waterville but the simplest for visitors is to follow the main sign (turn left) for Waterville which lies east of route 143. In the center of town turn right and then take the first street on the right which is Compton West. The church is located at 60 Compton West and is on your left with a very small parking area. The cemetery is directly behind it.

This Anglican church cemetery was used mainly in the mid to late 1800s. Although it is kept mowed and trimmed, many of the stones need repair. Some have fallen, some are broken and some are tipped and in need of straightening. A few are difficult to read.

Susan Nutbrown and I visited this cemetery in June of 2005, and we have transcribed from all existing and legible tombstones or markers.
