BRODRICK CEMETERY -

BRODRICK CEMETERY - FIVE ISLANDS, COLCHESTER COUNTY,

NOVA SCOTIA

This is a small graveyard near the shore at the edge of the field behind the Murray Ellis property. Stones from this cemetery have been removed, and used as doorsteps, others probably washed away by erosion. It is located beyond the Methodist cemetery, over the bridge, up the hill, and turn left at the first road. Read on 18 June 1987 by William Hill and Brad Yuill.

There were several broken stones and foot markers.
