From the town of Barnston, take the Baldwin-Barnston Road toward
Baldwin Mills. After a few kilometers watch for a road on your left
called Tremblay Road (Chemin Tremblay). The cemetery is right at
this junction on your right and can be seen from the road if you
look in the right place.
This small cemetery with its quaint tombstones is completely
surrounded by pastureland and in fact I had to walk in among the
cattle to get to the cemetery which is fenced off. The farmers
here do not object to anyone walking into the cemetery.
This cemetery has been around for almost 200 years with the earliest
tombstone dating from 1814. The last burial here was in 1933.
It is maintained by the Barnston Heritage Cemetery Corporation
but is mowed only once a year and at the time I visited, the grass
was long and there were quite a few raspberry bushes in among
There were also many hidden slabs and markers making it easy
to trip over them and fall. Use caution if walking in here. Judging
from these field stones and markers there are quite a few more
burials here than I was able to record.
I walked and read this cemetery on Oct 25, 2007 and made a complete
recording from all legible tombstones.
