United Church Cemetery (#3)
District of St. Barbe (White Bay)

Partial Transcription (67 of ~95 as of 2002)

This Cemetery is located at the top of a hill, overlooking the beautiful town of Englee. It's very well maintained. The majority of the older headstones were in a scattered order, but in relatively good condition. Unfortunately, some of them were falling down the side of the hill and it was too dangerous to transcribe them. Many of the graves had wooden crosses, and only one of those had a name plate. This transcription is done in memory of my grandmother, Susannah Chloe Lane Canning (1913 -1942).
