Templeman - United Church Cemetery

Templeman is a small fishing village situated along the rocky coastline of Bonavista Bay North. The United Church Cemetery is located on the main highway, within the settlement. It is fenced and reasonably groomed. It is situated in or very near a bog, and much of the ground is very wet.

The inscriptions were read, recorded and transcribed by FRANK & HEATHER KING, 1999. While we have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
