NL GenWeb Headstone Inscriptions

Conception Bay North ~ Northern District

Lower Island Cove United Church Cemetery (Partial)

Information presented only contains the factual data, names and dates. The abbreviations used are: d.= date; Y = years; M = months if following a number; W = wife; H = husband; S = son; D = daughter; F = father and M = mother. Where two people were listed on one headstone and it was readily apparent that they were husband and wife, H or W of.... was added in such cases. Family information know to the authors appear in brackets. While every attempt was made to ensure accuracy, if a discrepancy is noted the a ctual headstone inscription shoud take precedence.

Headstone inscriptions were collected and compiled by GERALD & MARGARET HEAD MAJOR, May 1999. While WE have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
