Campbell's Creek Cemetery

Twillingate District

 

 

Cemetery located at Campbell's Creek on the south shore of the Port au Port Peninsula.
It looks across Bay St George in the direction of Flat Bay and Sandy Point. There is the
old foundation of a Church or other large building next to the cemetery on the right hand side.
The one thing you notice in this cemetery, it is dominated by simple white crosses, many of
which have no name on them or only a Christian or surname. ( *+ stands for a wooden Cross)
( [ stands for my note)
