Greenwood Cemetery Owen Sound Plan

Near the mausoleum, you will find the plan for Greenwood Cemetery. Originally, the areas were called mainly by names that described the location. For example - West Extension. That area now is called Spruce Haven. The cemetery has a database of burials on its website that includes up to 1979.
For each entry there is a code to tell the location the person's name, age at death, title, date of death and date of burial. All very useful information.

The listings only go up to 1979 because of Privacy Laws in Ontario. If you are looking for a more recent burial you will have to contact the cemetery office.

Tombstone Tuesday - Brackenborough (2)

This is a follow-up of a previous Tombstone Tuesday on the Brackenborough Family. As a result of that posting, I was able to connect two people researching this surname and provide some information.

When I took the photo last fall, I forgot to look at the other side of the stone.  I am posting it here with a photo of the other side showing the area where the stone is located. Last Friday, I took advantage of the warm spring day to go walking in the cemetery.

To live in the hearts of those we leave behind
is not to die
