Tapley Cemetery
Brantford Twp, Brant County, Ontario, Canada

Contributed by Murray E. Fair, Nov 14, 2003 [murrayfair@rogers.com]. Total records = 10.

From the intersection of Highway # 24 & Highway # 53, traffic lights, travel west on Highway # 53, 1.6 km, to Cleaver Road, turn left and travel south 1.2 km, on Cleaver Road, to Godby Road, turn left and travel east on Godby Road 0.4 km. The cemetery is on the south side of Godby Road.

This small cemetery is inactive and is very old with only a few stones. The stones have been placed in a single row and embedded in a concrete foundation in the centre of the graveyard. A few stones are broken off, probably by vandals. The cemetery is under the jurisdiction of The Corporation of the County Of Brant. It does not appear to be maintained to any degree.

I walked this cemetery in Oct, 2003, and read the inscription on each tombstone that could be read.

    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.
