Location: From Lennoxville, take Route 108 East to the town of Cookshire. Continue through the town and the cemetery is on the right side of the road immediately after the Cookshire Protestant Cemetery.

This cemetery is known as the Cookshire Catholic Cemetery (Cimetière Catholique de Cookshire). It appears to have begun around 1872, much later than the adjacent Protestant Cemetery. The cemetery is well cared for with a nice fence and paved lanes.

We last visited this cemetery in 2015, and we have photographed and transcribed all tombstones.
