UNITED CHURCH (formerly the BETHEL) CEMETERY

INGONISH, VICTORIA COUNTY, N.S.

JULY 1994


This cemetery is located down a path on the ocean side of the Cabot Trail between Ingonish United and St. John's Anglican Churches. It is on the grounds formerly occupied by the Old Bethel Church (part of the foundation remains in the north east corner). The Bethel was a place of worship for Methodists, Church of England and Presbyterians. As the structure fell into disrepair; the Methodists built their own church in 1885 (close to the existing United Church). At the time of Church Union in 1925, this edifice became the place of worship for the United Church congregation. The cemetery continues to be used by the United Church congregation. More information can be found about the Ingonish Churches in "Keep to the Light: a history of St. John's and Its People" written by Fred Williams (1992).

The inscriptions were transcribed in July 1994 by Tom Brewer. Tom has written two books about the Ingonish area and has a large database of information. He has generously offered to answer any inquiries sent to him at tbrewer@sympatico.ca The inscriptions are arranged alphabetically by surname.
