From Sherbrooke take either Route 143 North or Autoroute 55 to Bromptonville. If using Route 55 Nord, take exit 60 to Bromptonville. At the stop sign turn left and cross over the highway. At the stop sign turn right on River Road (Chemin de la Rivière). Continue on this road for 4km. The cemetery is on your right. If using route 143 North, when you get to Bromptonville, turn left at the light (Laval Street) and continue to the end. At the stop, turn right on River Road and the cemetery is 4 miles on your right.

This is an old cemetery. It has burials dating to at least 1818 when the area was first settled. Many of the old stones are hard to read. The last burial seems to have been in 1905. The cemetery is in good shape, with a fence and gate and it is mowed and maintained but I do not know who is responsible for it. Bromptonville is now a borough of the city of Sherbrooke.

I last visited this cemetery in 2015 and photographed all tombstones.
