canada cemetery records

Canada is rich with history, and as such, has numerous cemeteries that document the lives and deaths of its citizens. Cemeteries are an important source of information for genealogists, historians, and anyone interested in tracing their family roots or learning about the lives of past generations. In Canada, cemetery records are maintained by different organizations and government agencies.

One of the primary organizations responsible for cemetery records in Canada is the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC). The CWGC is responsible for maintaining the graves of soldiers who died in military service during both World War I and World War II. The CWGC maintains over 23,000 war graves in Canada, including those in military cemeteries and those in civilian cemeteries.

Canada cemetery records are an important resource for anyone interested in learning about the lives and deaths of past generations. Whether you are a genealogist, historian, or simply someone interested in exploring the history of Canada, cemetery records provide a fascinating glimpse into the lives of those who came before us.

Cemetery records published here were acquired from Canada cemeteries, churches, municipalities, associations and genealogists specifically for family history and local history research.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
