South Eleuthera Bahamas
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The settlement of Tarpum Bay is situated between Rock Sound and Savannah Sound, Eleuthera. Its original name was Glenelg, named after Lord Glenelg who was appointed Secretary of State for the Colonies in April 1835. One of the most photographed churches on Eleuthera, St. Columba Anglican Church, was established there in 1849. The Methodist Church in Tarpum Bay had even earlier roots in the settlement when Reverend Turton arrived to construct a small chapel. The Public Cemetery was laid out on the edge of the sea north of the Primary School.
