Canadian Gravemarker Gallery


I just recently became aware of this free gem: The Canadian Gravemarker Gallery. From their April newsletter, comes the following description: 

"The Main Objective of the Canadian Gravemarker Gallery website, is to collect and process COMPLETELY PHOTOGRAPHED CEMETERIES from across Canada. We place the photos online as a valuable free-access resource for genealogists, both professional and amateur. In addition though, we have found that genealogical societies, government agencies, monument companies, consulates, cemetery owners, funeral homes, and curious descendants of those buried also show a keen interest in our online cemeteries. 

The Canadian Gravemarker Gallery shows over 1,247 completely photographed cemeteries and over 711,073 photographs from across Canada are searchable online.

COMPLETE CEMETERIES ADDED/UPDATED THIS MONTH: 

1. Ontario, Northern Ontario, Kenora District, Dryden, Municipal Cemetery - Catholic Block.
2. Ontario, Southern Ontario, Halton Regional Municipality, Oakville, Bethel Cemetery.
3. Ontario, Southern Ontario, Halton Regional Municipality, Oakville, Bronte Cemetery.

The Canadian Gravemarker Gallery is the oldest and largest website in Canada displaying ONLY COMPLETELY PHOTOGRAPHED cemeteries. This non-sponsored and free National Site is proud to announce that we are in our 14th year of providing a free access operation.  

If you have family or friends ANYWHERE in Canada, who may be interested in photographing their local cemeteries, please inform them of the availability of The Canadian Gravemarker Gallery. 

At the Canadian Gravemarker Gallery, we can accommodate unlimited numbers of photographs of grave stones from anywhere in Canada. The photographers and/or organizations are given credit on the website for their dedication and hard work."
