Please have the following information ready before making your request:

Our records do not always have; maiden names, birth dates, occupations, next-of-kin or children's names.

Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid - Ontario Genealogical Society files numbers that can be found online (i.e., HM-444) do not correspond to our records in any way and we cannot use them to locate an individual in one of our cemeteries.
