Genealogical Research

Cemetery Staff will happily provide assistance with burial confirmations and genealogical research.

An Interactive Cemetery Map is available for genealogical research of individuals who have been deceased for more than thirty years.

If you wish to confirm if an individual is buried in our cemetery or determine their specific location within the cemetery, please contact Cemetery Staff.

As the cemetery does not have designated Staff onsite at all times, if you require assistance in locating an interment site, please contact Cemetery Staff at least two to three days before your visit.

Cemetery Staff will gladly offer assistance with genealogy searches using the cemetery records available. Cemetery records usually contain some or all of the following information:

  • Date of death
  • Age
  • Photos of monuments or memorials

A charge of $50.00 per hour will be applied to all searches unless no data is available. Please allow up to two weeks for research to be completed.

Due to a past fire, many of the cemetery’s burial records from 1900 to 1915 were destroyed. Cemetery Staff are working to catalogue these records using the data available on existing monuments.  However, because some interments were not memorialized, this data may be unrecoverable without the help of family members.

Canada Gen Web's Cemetery Project
