I was wondering if you had looked at this website? There are apparently records for a William and a Jane Strachan in the same area of Woodlawn Cemetery in Guelph. The contributing organization should be able to help or perhaps the cemetery itself.

Since there is a 5 year old daughter in the 1861 census there is a rather narrow time frame for the death occurrence.

Likely Woodlawn if not;

https://www.cambridge.ca/en/learn-about/Archives-and-Genealogy.aspx as they have tons of records pre 1900 and most burial books for Puslinch/Waterloo and even Brant.
