NL GenWeb Cemetery Inscriptions
Bonavista Bay Region ~ Bonavista North District
Lumsden North - Methodist? Cemetery by the Beach
I believe this is a United (Methodist?) Cemetery, but perhaps
someone with more local knowledge of the area could clarify this.
It is located close to the beach at the western end of Lumsden.
It was late evening when I transcribed these headstones.
The inscriptions were read, recorded and transcribed by LINDA ELKINS-SCHMITT July 2000. While we have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
