Sound Island There is very little left of any of the cemeteries. The Methodist cemetery at Newtown has only a few intact markers left. The ground has shifted and many trees have grown up. Some markers were renewed and a few were added for the Sound Island Reunion in 1993, but today most of them are either broken beyond recognition or worn and hard to read.
