The Rhode Island Historical Cemeteries Transcription Project
The first two letters of cemetery number are the town, and the numbers are assigned sequentially as each cemetery is registered. Cemetery numbers above #300, or numbers like A03, are temporary numbers assigned to transcripts done in the past for cemeteries that have not yet been located, so they could be registered.
