Driving Directions

Waterville is a city of about 2,000 and is now in the MRC of Coaticook. In the center of town go up the hill on Main Street (rue Principale) and then take the first street on the right which is Compton West. The church is on your left with a very small parking area. The cemetery is directly behind it.

Cemetery History

This Anglican church cemetery was used mainly in the mid to late 1800s. Although it is kept mowed and trimmed, many of the stones need repair. Some have fallen, some are broken and some are tipped and in need of straightening. A few are not legible. We last visited this cemetery in  2016.

Cemetery Records

Records below were transcribed from tombstone inscriptions by Leslie and Susan Nutbrown during a visit to the cemetery initially in June 2005, and then again in 2016. Additional burials without headstones were recorded from local church records.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
