Croydon Cemetery

Location: Croydon Road, 100m east of junction with Croydon Ferry Road 
GPS co-ordinates: N 53 degrees 4' 13.1" - W 119 degrees 42' 48.7" 
Elevation: 637 metres 
          The cemetery site appears to be quite overgrown and partially damaged. It is presently being reclaimed and rehabbed. There are many probable burial sites marked with new white crosses but most of these do not have any other grave markers. Many of these white crosses correspond to a map and roster compiled in 1989 by Archie McLean. Only five grave markers were found that could be transcribed. 
          In the approximate location of the Langstaff plot there were many domestic irises and a lilac bush. These must have been planted at a gravesite, although it is hard to tell which one. There is presently a white cross at this location, but no other grave marker.
