Kennedy’s Lane Cemetery Listing

When I was in Newfoundland in Sept/Oct 2008 I used my digital camera to catalog all the headstones in the Kennedy’s Lane Cemetery in Holyrood. I’ve combined the images with headstone transcriptions that I began in 1999 and added to in 2002.

Since 1999 there have been some changes at Kennedy’s Lane. A windstorm in 2002 brought down at least one tree and caused damage to some of the stones. Also, vandals with crowbars, or some such weapons – have also destroyed some and damaged others. Most of these have been replaced or repaired. There are also new stones because interments are still done when people have family plots; and some of the new ones commemorate ancestors who were buried many years ago.

    I was looking at the names off all the Penney’s buried in this cemetary..There was a few real young ones also…What would have happened to them to die at such a young age.

    Please note he served in the CEF, not CEP.

    Eileen , a few years ago our family put two new plaques to my relatives. My mom ,Elizabeth Penney Bennett, showed me where her grandparents Joey Wheelwright Penney and his wife Mary Conran were buried . The other plaque is to my father Frank Bennetts great uncle Frank. Bennett . His great uncle buried his first wife Mary Lewis Bennett. and is most likely buried next to her in a marked but unnamed grave.
