Susan A. Hill has published a book entitled Some Cumberland County, Nova Scotia Cemeteries. Please contact the author at sahill@ns.sympatico.ca for information on pricing and availability.

It covers 24 cemeteries in the communities of Shulie, Ragged Reef, Minudie, Barronsfield, River Hebert, Maccan, Nappan, Fenwick, West Amherst (Old Burial Ground), and Fort Lawrence. For many entries, additional information not found on the gravestones themselves is provided such as maiden names and complete death dates.
