Melbourne Ridge, Shefford County, Quebec
Contributed by Joan Cruickshank, Jul 07, 2007 [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Total records = 19.
Out of Richmond, Quebec, take Route 243 South to Melbourne Ridge, Quebec. This cemetery is located about 2 miles south of Melbourne Ridge, on Route 243.
As the name states, this tiny cemetery is the resting place for the Lawrence family. There are only 15 stones in it, some of which are not too legible, but the cemetery is well maintained. The last burial there that I could see was in 1968, so I assume that it is no longer an active cemetery.
I walked this cemetery in June of 2007, and transcribed from the stones to the best of my ability.- Joan Cruickshank
