Cape Breton County Burial Index


These downloadable files are a compilation which indexes persons who are buried, believed to be buried, or memorialized in cemeteries or on memorials in Cape Breton County, NS. 
This index is provided in two different formats that you can download. 

Both are zipped files and you need to have either WinZip or another unzip program installed on your computer before you can open them. 

Included in both of the zipped files is a "readme.rtf" file which includes important information about the index.

 

A HUGE thanks to Bob Hegerich for initiating and coordinating this project and thank you to all the volunteers who helped out!!
