Capsule # 0-G - The Neuville Cemetery  -  by claudematte|ALL

The first Neuville cemetery was near the 1st Church, south of  Des Érables street: we do not know the exact location. The second cemetery was located behind the present Church, where the current tennis ground is located, probably from the beginning of the 1700s. In 1919, the land where we have the current cemetery was sold to the  chuch by Athanase Delisle.

Since 1920, no burial has taken place in the 2nd cemetery. In 1934, it was abandoned under orders of the Health Services. We know that rocky ground is almost exposed at that location, to the point that earth had to be brought to raise the digging depth. This is evident along the Des Érables street.

There were drainage problems during heavy rains or in spring
