New Anglican Cemetery
Trinity Bay District

Hatchet Cove is a small fishing community just South of Random Island in Trinity Bay District, Newfoundland. It was first settled around the 1850's. The community, though small, has families who are typically one of two religions - Anglican or United Church of Canada. There are four small cemeteries found within this community.

The OLD ANGLICAN cemetery is located on the southeast corner of the community, along the coastline. It is somewhat difficult to locate, having to traverse private property and negotiate a hidden path through the woods. A new wire fence has been erected within the past two years. The cemetery is covered with thick undergrowth and many of the graves are barely discernable.
The OLD UNITED CHURCH cemetery is located in the south west corner of the community. A small path through the woods leads to the cemetery located about a kilometer from the community. It lies on the coastal side of the path and is surrounded by a wire fence. Although it covers an area large enough for a dozen or more graves, only three headstones are present. Because of the dates it would be more appropriate to refer to this cemetery as the 'old Methodist cemetery'.
The NEW UNITED CHURCH cemetery is located in the center of the community, towards the western side of the hill. It is well cared for and most of the graves have headstones that are in excellent to good condition. The traditional family plots appear to be maintained.
The NEW ANGLICAN cemetery is located in the north west corner of the community. It lies beside the road leading to the next community of St. Jones Within. This cemetery is also kept in very good condition.

The headstones were read, recorded and transcribed by FRANK KING, May 1999. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
