Cimetière Saint-Antoine
(Saint Anthony Cemetery)
Lennoxville, Sherbrooke County, Quebec
 

Lennoxville is now a borough of the city of Sherbrooke. The entrance to the cemetery is on Saint Francis Street. From Bishop's University in Lennoxville, cross the bridge and keep left at the stop sign. The cemetery entrance is a short distance on your right. The cemetery runs in a relatively narrow strip directly behind and bordering Malvern Cemetery.

This cemetery also known as Saint Anthony's Cemetery appears to have begun in the 1850s, as the earliest headstones date from that period. These early burials are mainly Irish Catholics. Most of the stones are legible and the cemetery is well maintained. I have included all the names from cremations written on several monuments from the Cooperative Funeraire de L'Estrie.

We last visited this cemetery in 2015 and photographed all monuments.
