Long Description:
From Main Street, a roadside rock face hides the cemetery from view. There is no sign. The wooden picket fence surrounding the little cemetery has been replaced by chain link. However, the white chain is plastic, not metal. It's fragile.

The are two monuments for four children buried here in the 1890s, children of Baggs families. Two young sons of William and Alfreda Baggs died in 1895: George Francis and Richard John. July 6th 1891, two sisters drowned in the harbour: Melena and Lenora Baggs.
