Trinity Bay ~ Upper Trinity North District

Hickman's Harbour - United Church Cemetery

The United Church Cemetery is located high on a hill in the south east side of Hickman's Harbour. This scenic fishing village is located on Random Island in the South West Arm of Trinity Bay. As you near the harbour, keep left and follow the paved road through the community for about 1.5 km. Just past the United Church, turn left up the second road. Continue up this road, past the funeral home, and the senior citizen home. Then follow the narrow gravel road to the cemetery. The cemetery is easily accessible by car.

The headstones were read, recorded and transcribed by FRANK & HEATHER KING, August 1999. While we have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
