Tilt Cove - Unidenominational Cemetery

This is a small cemetery located up a very rough dirt road, just outside the town of Tilt Cove. When entering Tilt Cove from the highway, it's on the right hand side of the road, at the top of the hill before you go down into Tilt Cove. There was no sign on the highway indicating a cemetery and I came across it by accident while working in the area.

The inscriptions were transcribed by THOMAS HYNES, August 1999. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there may be typographical errors.

In loving memory of William Bond BARTLETT, 
beloved husband of Elizabeth A. Bartlett  
Died July 4, 19[45?]     aged 67 years

In loving memory of Elizabeth Anne BARTLETT
Died June 27, 1954    aged 73 years
[These two headstones were in a fenced plot, overgrown 
with weeds and bushes.  The headstones had some staining 
which made the text difficult to read in places, but I believe 
William's year of death could be determined if I'd had more 
time there.  Unfortunately my work requirements didn't
allow it at that time.]

In loving memory of Audrey [WINSOR]died May 5, 1936 [1976], 
dear daughter of Victoria and the late Percy WINSOR, and wife of the 
late Fred ROBINSON. [This marker was a white wooden cross with a 
thin metal plate, about 5 inches square, at the intersection of the arms.  
The plate was engraved with above information, but was very difficult 
to read. The year of death was written in the text as 1936, but in the 
bottom left corner of the metal plate was written 1976, presumably to 
correct an engraving error]
