This cemetery is located next to the Nathaniel Morris House which is a registered heritage site.
The cemetery was in the churchyard of the original Methodist chapel in Trinity.
The cemetery was abandoned when the new Methodist cemetery opened
at the Gun Hill site. When transcribed, all of the headstones had fallen
and were badly overgrown. I have been informed that this site
was restored several years ago.
