You may find a few RAOGK volunteers for Toronto willing to take Cemetery photographs on this link.
Usually they require the grave location, so you may have to contact the cemetery first to see if they can tell you that information.

Fingers crossed that they can help but don't be surprised if they need the grave reference.

Would be brilliant if you could let us know of any updates ?

Hi,

The Mount Pleasant Group site provides grave references....

http://www.finditatmpg.com/Default.aspx

Plot Z, Section 24, Lot 7 at Mount Pleasant Cemetery should probably be enough information to find it.  :)

I hope someone can take a photo of William's stone for you.  I don't see it on the Findagrave site or on the Canadian Headstones site.    Mount Pleasant is a really big cemetery!!

Hi RK,

When I first read the post this morning I must have been half asleep - read page 1, so saw Ada at Thornhill Cemetery, somehow missed page 2 and replied to Alan about Find A grave on page 3 !!!!!
Must be having a silly day.   ::)

 :) :) :)

Happens to everyone :) :)

I think there are a couple of non-denominational or Protestant cemeteries in Thornhill too.
