West Isles Churches & Cemeteries
Last Updated Jan 2008

The following Churches and Cemeteries are located in West Isles.  If there are any missing ones, please let me know.  Special thanks to Audrey Cline for directions to these cemeteries in 2006. Starting point for driving purposes would be Butler Point Ferry Landing. As of Jan 2008, the only cemetery not completely photographed is Mt. Hope. All photos taken by Marilyn Strout that show a date of 2005, it should actually be 2006.

If you have any obituaries/ tombstone photos you'd be willing to share, feel free to drop me a note.
