From Leeds Village take Route 269 south for about 3 miles. Watch for route 216 to  Inverness on your right, also known as the 11th Range. Stay on this road for about 2 km. The cemetery is located at the top of a hill on your left surrounded by a farm. You can park on the road or near the gate without blocking the farm access. 

This cemetery and the Plummer Cemetery are not far apart on the 11th range. It is referred to in church records as the George Church Cemetery. The  cemetery is mowed and cared for by the Greenlay George Cemetery Association. Work has been done to straighten and restore monuments in 2011.

There is plenty of room in this rather large plot of land but it appears it will never be filled since there are few English people living in the area today. It was used since the 1830s and the latest burial was in 2007 so it is still occasionally used. Mr. & Mrs. W. T. Harper made a listing of this cemetery in 1972.  There is a little stand with a book inside for vistors to record their names. It is also fenced off from the surrounding fields and it has a gate. For further information or to donate for the upkeep, please contact Goldwyn George at 819-563-5287. We photographed the monuments on July 9, 2015. Some information has been added from church records.
