The Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria
P.O. Box 50004, RPO Fairfield Plaza, Victoria, BC V8S 5L8
Since the early 1980s, members of the Old Cemeteries Society have protected, preserved, and promoted Greater Victoria’s more than twenty heritage cemeteries; most activities centre on Ross Bay Cemetery. Volunteers engage in historical research, lead Sunday walking history tours, conduct school tours, provide assistance to genealogists, catalogue and computerize burial records, combat vandalism, clean graves, and restore damaged monuments. Membership dues, tour admissions, and donations all support the ongoing work of the OCS.
Benefits of OCS membership include email notices of Sunday tours and other events; reduced admission to the Sunday tours; and an email newsletter, Stone Cuttings, sent out six times a year. Annual memberships run from January 1 to December 31.
