The following Headstone information was recorded in May 1999. It only contains the factual data, names and dates. The abbreviations used are: d.= date; Y = years; M = months if following a number; W = wife; H = husband; S = son; D = daughter; F = father and M = mother. Where two people were listed on one Headstone and it was readily apparent that they were husband and wife, H or W of…. was added in such cases. Family information know to the authors appear in brackets. While every attempt was made to ensure accuracy, if a discrepancy is noted the actual headstone inscription shall take precedence.

Lower Island Cove United Church Cemetery
