Headstone Transcriptions

Bluff Head Cove Cemetery

The information was transcribed by BERNIE HEARD ~ 1999. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there may be typographical errors.
Bluff Head Cove is on the north side of Gros Water Bay, about midway between Indian Harbour to the east and Rigolet to the west. It was the home of the Oliver's and Rich's in the mid/late 1800's and early 1900's. It was used as a burying ground by a number of families along that section of the coast. It is no longer inhabited, except by some family members during the summer months who maintain cabins there.
