The entrance to the cemetery is on Saint Francis Street. From Bishop University, cross the bridge and keep left at the stop sign. The cemetery entrance is a short distance on your right. The cemetery runs in a relatively narrow strip directly behind and bordering Malvern Cemetery.
This cemetery appears to have begun in the 1850s, as the earliest headstones date from that period. These early burials are mainly Irish Catholics whereas most of the recent stones are French Catholics. Most of the stones are legible and the cemetery is well maintained. I have included all the names written on several monuments from the Cooperative Funeraire de L'Estrie.
Susan Nutbrown and I walked and read this cemetery in June 2007 and made a complete recording from all legible tombstones and markers.Some useful translation if you visit the cemetery is as follows:
