Gray Creek Cemetery
Central Kootenay, British Columbia, Canada

Contributed by Garry Burch, Dec 03, 2003 [habcreek@kootenay.com]. Total records = 77.

To access this cemetery you travel north on Highway 3A from Creston, BC for 67 KM to Anderson Road or 67.5 KM to Oliver Road. If using Anderson Road you climb the hill for .4 KM until you reach a bridge, cross the bridge and continue past the Oliver Road Junction for .3 KM until you reach the cemetery on the left. Using the Oliver Road access you climb the hill .3 KM until you intersect Anderson Road, turn left on it for .3 KM until you reach the cemetery on your left. If crossing Kootenay Lake on the ferry from the west, Oliver Road is 13.5 Km from the Kootenay Bay ferry landing and Anderson Road is another .5 KM.

The Gray Creek Cemetery is situated in the Regional District of Central Kootenay in the community of Gray Creek. It is a picturesque setting among the trees above the actual community centre.

This Cemetery was walked and transcribed during Jan and Feb 2003. I have compiled these records from this walk through, tombstone inscriptions, and sexton records.
