This cemetery is located at the east entrance of Brador Bay Village, behind the first row of houses along the oceanshore. It can not be seen from the road 138.
Old Brador Bay Cemetery is an old Anglican cemetery which is not used anymore. It was used by people of Brador Bay when most of people lived into the bay, very close to the sea.
There were 4 wooden crosses with no inscriptions and 2 areas surrounded with a fence, with no inscriptions when I compiled this transcription in September of 2000.
