2016 Update: As part of our continuing Row Marker project, we have placed a new marker pointing the way to the grave of Nellie Cashman (U64E51). This is one of 9 new markers being placed this year.
Until December 2009, Ross Bay Cemetery had no physical markers to show the location of sections, rows and plot numbers. We had a very good, detailed map but no easy way to locate a particular row or plot.
Plots can be found by comparing the map with features on the ground and then counting to the desired location. Then adjacent markers must be cross-referenced to ensure accuracy. This takes a lot of time and is not always totally correct.
With our new project markers or plaques are being placed in three bands running East and West across the cemetery.
Each marker will show the section, row and plot number for that particular location. This is a reference point that will allow everyone to easily and accurately find specific grave locations.
This project was completed in 2013. Thank you for your support.
