From the village of Baldwin Mills, take Cabana Street toward Coaticook. After about 2km watch for a white house on your right (number 2515) with a long driveway. The cemetery is in back of this property in the woods.
Visitors will need to stop at the above property and get permission from the owner to visit the cemetery. The owners are most obliging. The cemetery cannot be seen from the road or their house as it is in a clearing in the woods and is about a 5 minute walk. Keep a bit left and you should find it.
The cemetery is very small with only a few headstones but it does have a fence and a gate and is maintained by the Barnston Heritage Cemetery Corporation. There are a few markers and field stones as well which likely indicates a few more burials here.
I visited and read this cemetery on Oct 22, 2007 and made a complete recording of all legible tombstones.
