Greenlay Cemetery
Greenlay, Richmond County, Quebec

Lat: 45° 33' 49"N, Lon: 71° 58' 49"W

Contributed by Leslie Nutbrown, Oct 12, 2006, last edited Nov 23, 2007 [lnutbrown@videotron.ca]. Total records = 158.

From Sherbrooke, take Route 143 to Bromptonville and continue to Windsor. In the center of town, turn left at the light and cross the bridge to Greenlay. Turn left at the first light on Greenlay South Street. The cemetery is short distance on your right up on a hill, in behind a local drinking establishment.

This is an old cemetery with stones dating to the 1820's. It overlooks the St. Francis River. The last burial appears to be in 1963. I do not know who maintains this cemetery but it is kept mowed. It is fenced and there is a gate. There is no sign and it is possible the cemetery is known by another name as well. Some stones are difficult to read due to weathering and some are broken.

Angela Nutbrown and I read this cemetery in October 2006 and made a complete recording of all legible tombstones.
