was known as Indian Arm prior to the settlement being renamed in 1904. The Wild Cove Cemetery
is an old Anglican Church Cemetery located at the farthest tip of the community accessible
only by foot (approximately a 10 to 15 minute walk from the community), or by small boat. The cemetery is
located on a grassy piece of land situated above the beach, and over the years a large number of headstones and graves
have been lost due to erosion by wind, water and time. Some of those remaining are in good condition, others are very
difficult to read. Almost all have beautiful lengthy inscriptions following the names of those resting there.
