How to report a possible transcription error

These transcriptions may contain human errors.
As always, confirm these, as you would any other source material.

Anglican Cemetery Cavendish
Trinity Bay
Newfoundland


This transcription begins at the highest point in the cemetery, the top left corner... and zigzags by rows down the hill to the bottom right corner. Due to the haphazard rows and some rehab work that is in progress (August 2001), it is difficult to describe the location of plots precisely, however, I have noted some landmarks and some stone descriptions in brackets() to aid researchers in locating the arrangement)
