The information on the Anglican Cemetery at Coward's Island Bonavista Bay was collected by Julia Hiscock Hobeika and Grace Hiscock Hollett. The information in the notes was done in collaboration with Larry Hiscock, Everett Saunders and Tom & Pearl Saunders. All are former residents of Coward's Island. The Anglican church for the people of Coward's Island was located at nearby Flat Island, Bonavista Bay. No one lives at either island permanently but there a few summer cabins currently.
