Springdale - Old United Church Cemetery

This time it's the U.C.Cemetery in Springdale. This cemetery didn't present a challenge at all (drat); it's well looked after although it hasn't been in use for a number of years. Although many of the gravestones in the old Springdale U.C. Cemetery have been noted, they consist mainly of the names of those who, to my knowledge, do not have descendants in this area. Exceptions to this were made for some of those who have been researching local surnames on our Nfld. Mailing Lists. I will submit the remainder of the names from the Springdale U.C. Cemetery at a later date.

Headstone inscriptions were transcribed by BARBARA PEDERSON, June 1998. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there may be typographical errors.
