For more positive results finding Memorials and/or Information...

  1. It is easiest to find memorials by name in our "Find a Stone" section where they are available in alphabetical order for each Word or Cemetery. But they are also available to "browse" in our Gallery.
    To search a Ward in Maple Leaf, via alphabetical order of names click the photo above and proceed. If the name is not listed, Search for the name in our "Find a Stone" area using the instructions below. Please remember with such a long list mistakes can occur.
    If Unsuccessful try searching our Gallery.
  2. Most photos here are actually stored in our Gallery and then linked in "Find a Stone" and other areas of our site.
  3. .Photos in "Find a Stone" areas are available in one size only. A larger photo is available in the Gallery using Gallery search below. Once there, click on thumb to see normal size and click again (ONCE!) to see it larger. To print/copy/link to a photo you will find the best photo to use is the one in our Gallery. In the Gallery copying the URL bar as normal to link to, or save a photo does NOT work. If you use Firefox, RIGHT CLICK and select "Copy Image Location". For other browsers, just use comparable instructions. For further assistance please Contact ... John at . Please remember that photos here are copyright to the poster and/or to the web site owner.
  4. Please contact cemetery staff and/or OGS for further information on stones not yet photographed.

The KOGS recorded text from all existing stones a few years back. In many cases text was more readable then. See Information Here. We highly recommend you use their transcriptions along with photos here.

Please remember when searching that stone carvers often made mistakes in carving names, and that search works for words like "Crimean", or "IOOF" as well as names. If unsuccessful try other spellings, family names, etc
