         HISTORICAL CEMETERY #: EP005     ANCIENT LITTLE NECK BURIAL GRND          EAST PROVIDENCE   



            south of LITTLE NECK AVE



            1000 burials with 727    inscriptions from 1662 to 1993



            NOTE: This transcript started with a compilation put together by Harold Flint in the 1970's.  He used burial permits



            1862-1967 from East Providence and vital records from 1643-1862 from Rehoboth, Swansea and Seekonk.  He also  



            consulted relatives.  Also used was a small notebook (7" x 4") titled 'List of Lots showing burials in those  



            lots.  It was used by the caretaker to know where graves could be dug.  The cemetery management over the years



            has been less than ideal. The last page of the lot book says: "There are numerous instances where no burials  



            are found to have been made in the various lots.  This is due to no record having been kept as a cemetery     



            record and more significantly because no lot numbers were designated on the burial permits.  It has become    



            known through reliable sources that burials were made where there had been a previous burials and that residue



            from that burial were disposed of by 'throwing it over the bank'.  Such residue included not only the skeleton



            remains but often casket handles and name plates."                                                            



            This cemetery has been recorded but not checked.
