While I was home on Bell Island this summer I took a lot of pictures of headstones there. Some didn't turn out very clear and because I was with someone else that is not interested in genealogy I felt rushed when I was taking the pictures and some of them have pieces of grass or flowers that blocked some of the information on several of the headstones. I'm typing the inscriptions below for the ones that I can read the only problem is I can't remember which cemetery some of the pictures were taken. Most were taken at St. Michael's Roman Catholic, the one's of Normore's were from the Old Cemetery, then some of the others were taken at the cemetery Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Cemetery, there are also some from the two other cemeteries on the Island as well. One across from the arena and the other across the street from a store but I don't remember the names or religion of the two cemeteries. Anyway here's some of the inscriptions from those headstones.
