To go to Battle Harbour cemetery, you will have to take the wooden boardwalk from the wharf to the church. Behind the church you must climb a rocky hill to reach the other side of Battle Harbour Island. There, a small trail easy to find will bring you to the cemetery.
Battle Harbour is located on Battle Harbour Island 8 km off Mary's Harbour. To reach Battle Harbour, you must follow the road 510 east from St-Barbe/Blanc-Sablon ferry on about 200 km to Mary's Harbour then take a local ferry which will bring you to the village.
Battle Harbour had been an important community of english fisherman for more than 200 years. The few people that were still living there were forced to move by NewFoundland Government to Mary's Harbour. Recently, the Canadian Federal Government has made Battle Harbour an important historic site to let us remember the important role of this place in the development of Labrador.
