Black Cat Cemetery Preservation is dedicated to preserving historic gravestones with a ‘Do No Harm’ practice.

Based out of St. John’s, Newfoundland, we are a husband and wife archaeological team with a combined 20 years of experience in the heritage sector (archaeology, museums, consulting, etc!). We are excited to focus our passion for preserving the past and spreading awareness of historic spaces. We employ up-to-date stone conservation techniques and operate with a do-no-harm practice. We are dedicated to teaching others about how to lessen their impact on these historic sites through cleaning and repair, and to preserve local heritage.

Black Cat offers a range of in-person and remote gravestone and burial ground preservation services, including workshops on gravestone cleaning, assessment of sites for future work, cataloguing gravestones, simple plan drawing, and historic research, to remote consultations. We are happy to meet with you via zoom to discuss a project. Just drop us an email or find us on Facebook or Instagram.

We are looking forward to working with you!
