Trinity Bay ~ Upper Trinity North District
Hatchet Cove - Old Methodist CemeteryHatchet Cove is a small fishing community just South of Random Island in Trinity Bay, Newfoundland. It was first settled around the 1850's. The community, though small, has families who are typically one of two religions - Anglican or United Church of Canada. There are four small cemeteries found within this community. Attached is a diagram of the community with the cemeteries marked with an X.
The headstones were read, recorded and transcribed by FRANK KING, May 1999. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
