The village Budir is
situated at the end of the bay Faskrudsfjordur.
The Co-operative Society there operates a shop, a fishing outfit and a fish
processing factory. Late in the 19th and early in the 20th centuries French
fishing vessels were serviced there and the French built a hospital and
secured sacred ground for the burial of the fishermen, who died
on the long fishing expeditions to the Icelandic fishing grounds.Altogether 49 French and Belgians lie buried there.
