Boswarlos Community
Port au Port

District of St. Georges Bay

View of Cemetery



This is a well kept field near the community of Boswarlos on the north side of the Port au Port Peninsula. The cemetery looks out across Port au Port Bay towards Fox Island and the Lewis Hills. The cemetery has only a few markers and several of these were hard to read. Much of this cemetery is open space, not sure if it was used or if any evidence of the grave and there markers have just disappeared over the years.
