Frequently Asked Questions


Our front page . We utilize two URL’s – https://cemetery.canadagenweb.org and https://gravemarkers.ca


You can search for a Canadian cemetery, or our index of persons buried in Canadian cemeteries.


Cemetery Pages

Each cemetery listed on our website has its own cemetery page. Each cemetery page contains all known (to us) information about that cemetery, as well as submission forms specific to that cemetery if you have information to share.

The cemetery page can be found by doing a search, then clicking on the cemetery name.

Name / Photo Pages

Each name in our name index has its own name page (also referred to as photo page if a headstone photo is available). The name/photo page is where you can view information about the person in question, any photos that may be available, and make corrections to that name.


Here is where you can see what volunteer positions are available, and what is involved. This project is a 100% volunteer effort, new volunteers are always needed and always welcome.


Updates and announcements regarding the cemetery project are made available in three places:

1. On the website

2. On our update blog

3. On our Facebook Page
