Burns Lake Cemetery

Burns Lake, B.C.

I came across this rather strange part of the
Cemetery which was separated from the main part
by the railway line and fences. Will have to make some
enquiries into the Lolly family.
Looking closer I see the old man Sabastian outlived all
the others - 1887-1972. The others, all men, died early
mostly in their 30s - one under 20.

From the look of the various headstones, this cemetery has been around for quite some time.

They look as if they were here for a very long time. It might have an interesting story behind it.
