L'Anse Amour Cemetery
Labrador, Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada
Submitted by Charles Gravel, Apr 22, 2006 [email@example.com]. Total records = 37.
To reach L'Anse Amour, you must drive about 20km from the Quebec/Labrador ferry on the 510 E. road, then follow
Anse Amour Branch Road for about 3km. The cemetery is on the left side of this road.
The village of L'Anse Amour is situated in the Labrador Straits area of Labrador. It is well-known for its major archeologic finding of the most ancient burial site of
North America. About ten people living mainly from seal hunting and cod fishing live there nowadays.
I visited and read this cemetery in July of 2001.
It includes all existing and legible stones and markers. There appear to be some unmarked.
