Cemetery Questions

Cemetery Questions

ALL information we currently have regarding the cemetery and those buried within can be found on the cemetery page. This website is a work in progress and we are continually adding new information. If what you seek is not yet on the cemetery page, please visit again at a later date.

You can be notified of new additions by subscribing our update blog or Facebook page. Links to both are located at the top and bottom of every page of the website.

CanadaGenWeb’s Cemetery Project is a volunteer genealogy project, we are not representatives of the cemetery and cannot respond to enquiries that should be directed to the cemetery board, caretaker, a funeral home or monument company

Questions about CanadaGenWeb’s Cemetery Project:

🍁 How do I contact a volunteer / photographer?
We do not share contact information of our volunteers nor do we forward requests for contact. If a volunteer is available for requests their contact information will be provided on the cemetery page. Please be aware that many of our volunteers do not have personal connections to the cemeteries they photograph.

🍁 Could someone visit the cemetery for me and take a photo?
If a volunteer is available for requests their contact information will be provided on the cemetery page (hit the back button to see the cemetery page) under online resources.

🍁 When will the cemetery be photographed or updated?
We do not assign cemeteries. Volunteers choose which cemeteries to photograph based on their location and/or their interest. This also means that previously photographed cemeteries may not be easily revisited, and obtaining updated or additional photos may not be possible.

We do not provide updates on which cemeteries may or may not be currently in progress as there is never a guarantee a volunteer may be able to complete their work.

We do announce when work is complete and available on the website and you can subscribe to be notified by email.

🍁 Can I use photos from this website?
See our FAQ for our full photo permissions policy.

🍁 Can I add photos from this website to Find a Grave?
No. It is against both our policy and theirs. See our FAQ for our full photo permissions policy.

🍁 How do I add a name or photos to the cemetery?
Return to the cemetery page (hit the back button) and scroll down until you find the submission forms.

🍁 I have a question that isn’t here or on the general FAQ
If you’ve read all the information provided above, on the cemetery page, and on our general FAQ and still have a question, please use our contact form to ask your question.
