Cemetery Survey Tombstone Database
THIS DATABASE IS OFFLINE DUE TO A MOVE OF THE WEBSITE - PLEASE CHECK BACK
Getting this data online is an ongoing project and at this time we have only posted less than 50% of the records we have available. New records from the 1983 survey are being added as they become available. We are also working so this page will load faster.
Contents of this Table
These records were transcribed from a 1983 unpublished manuscript that was created by CFGS volunteers visiting cemeteries and writing down the tombstone inscriptions. The manuscript has recently been retyped into Excel and then uploaded into this database. Where a tombstones had lengthy inscription that exceeded the available column space, it was edited to fit. Where a letter(s) in names could not be read they are shown with a "?" (Question marks) for a single letter or ___ for groups of letters. Where a guess could be made, that was noted in the "Additional" column.
Dates are shown in YYYY-MM-DD format with leading zeroes. Dates or partially missing dates are noted by zeroes (00). If no date was available for either birth or death, it is shown as "0000-00-00" and where only a year was inscribed it is shown as 1925-00-00. A date where a single digit was unreadable is shown as 195?-02-23.
Where material was added that was not contained in the original manuscript that material is enclosed in brackets [ ]. There were also a few cases where additional names were added for older closed cemeteries where it seemed appropriate and that cemetery was no longer available for new burials. In those cases the source of the information was noted.
Although we have tried to implement quality control checks, there may be errors.
Navigating the Table
To search for a name or date, input your search term in the Search box and the table will automatically be filtered for that term. Note that the search result can appear in any of the fields. For example, if you search for the word "Phillip" it might appear in the Surname, Given Name or in the cemetery field. You can sort any one field in the table by clicking on very small faint up and down arrows found to the right of each field name in the table's title row.
You can choose how many records are displayed at a time using the Show Entries dropdown and you can advance to the next group of records by clicking on the Previous and Next arrows in the lower right-hand corner of the table.
NOTE THAT RECORDS ARE BEING ADDED TO THIS DATABASE ON A REGULAR BASIS
