Headstone Transcriptions

Rigolet 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.
Rigolet is located on the north side of the narrows at the entrance from Gros Water Bay into Lake Melville. It is the site of the first Hudson's Bay Company Post in Labrador, the HBCo having established there in 1836. Prior to that date a number of other Traders were located there, as it was a strategic location for both the fishery and fur trade. While the HBCo is no longer there, Rigolet is still a permanent community, and is the most southerly of the Labrador Inuit Association coastal communities.
