Portguese Cove, NS
Transcribed by W.K. Power


Headstone listings as of November, 1999

Notes: This cemetery is on the top of the hill behind St. Ann's Catholic Church in Portuguese Cove. After listing all of the headstones, I reviewed the records of the cemetery with the person in the Cove that in his younger days dug most of the graves and now helps to raise funds to look after the cemetery. All sites contain a headstone bearing the following information [unless stated that the information comes from the cemetery records only].
