Old Fort Cemetery
Old Fort, Bonne Esperance, Duplessis, Quebec

Lat: 51° 25 '25", Lon: 57° 49' 28"

Contributed by Charles Gravel, Feb 17, 2006 [charles_gravel@hotmail.com]. Total records = 40.

Old Fort is the last coastal village that can be reached by driving about 40 miles from Blanc-Sablon on the 138W.

This cemetery has two sections. The first, and oldest, section is located in the heart of the Village facing the bay. When this section was filled, with no way to expand adjacent to it, the cemetery was expanded to the north with a new section. The addition of this second section fulfilled the needs of this community of about 400 people.

The new part of the cemetery is upon a hill that circles Old Fort. It is accessible via a little road leading to a lookout known as "The Ridge".

I compiled this transcription in July of 2002.
