Notre Dame Bay ~ NDB West District

Triton Cemetery (Jim's Cove)

Names included: Fifield, Roberts, Simms, Vincent. This small cemetery is located beside the main road in what was formerly known as Jim’s Cove. It is well-maintained and surrounded by a white fence which is in good condition. All of the headstones are of the traditional thin, white type except number three which is a heavier grey stone and number one which is a metal cross. The cemetery is located next to what is now the new municipal building and across the road from Badger Bay Health & Beauty and the medical clinic. A sketch of the grave positions within the cemetery is also available.

Headstone inscriptions were transcribed by VALERIE WHALEN, November 1999. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
