Names included: Fifield, Roberts, Simms, Vincent. This small cemetery is located beside the main road in what was formerly known as Jim’s Cove. It has not been used in over 50 years but is well-maintained and surrounded by a white fence which is in good condition. All of the headstones are of the traditional thin, white type except number three which is a heavier grey stone and number one which is a metal cross. The cemetery is located next to what is now the new municipal building and across the road from the drugstore and medical clinic. A sketch of the grave positions within the cemetery is available by contacting Valerie Whelan. MELVIN ROBERTS BORN AUG. 4, 1940 1.
