This book includes includes information for those people who are interred at the Norway Bay United Cemetery & Norway Bay Anglican Cemetery, Bristol Township, Pontiac County, Quebec

Norway Bay Cemetery is located on parts of Lots 9 and 10,Range 1, Township of Bristol, County of Pontiac, Province of Quebec. It is about two miles east of the village of Bristol and about two miles south of Quebec Highway No. 148. It is believed the first land for the cemetery was donated by a man by the name of Ross about 1830. The first burial of which there is a record (that record being the inscription on a tombstone) was in 1836. The cemetery, dotted with tall pines and stately oaks, has been expanded over the years and now covers an area of about ten acres. An additional strip along the east side purchased in recent years is held in reserve for future use. The cemetery is used by many denominations. The second Sunday of July each year is set aside as Decoration Day and a Memorial Service is held. This event is always well attended. It is believed that Norway Bay Anglican Cemetery was established about 1830 to 1840. It is located on Lot 10, Range 2, Township of Bristol. No information is available regarding its early history.
