Please Note:

In compiling this, a complete listing of headstone inscriptions in the Methodist Cemetery of River John, Nova Scotia, I have taken a few minor liberties as follows.

- Where abbreviations were used I have substituted the complete words

- I have capitalized all surnames

- In a few instances, where the inscription was illegible, I have placed the questionable information in brackets or put question marks beside it.

I hope that this listing may prove useful for those viewing it.
