To reach this cemetery, take Autoroute 10 east from Montreal, or
west from Sherbrooke, to Exit 90. Take Rte 243 south and then Route
215 south to the Village of Brome. Just after the intersection with
Rte 104 turn left or east onto Stagecoach Road. Watch for the church
sign, the cemetery will be on the left side of the road beside the
church in a very short distance.
This Anglican cemetery dates back to the late 1800s judging from
the stones. It surrounds the Saint John Anglican Church in Brome.
It is still in use, although the last burial that I know of was
in 2005. The local archives are closed most of the time in the
winter, very hard to do research.
I have to admit that this listing is not as complete as I would
have liked. There are many monuments that we were unable to read
because they have been worn down to the point of being unreadable.
It has been well taken care of, which is not an easy task, since
it is situated on a hillside.
Marjorie-Anne Smith and I compiled this from all existing and
legible tombstone inscriptions in Oct 2006.
