Essex County's Hidden Cemeteries

The web map below has been created with the data collected in the field using ArcGIS Online. Students of Académie Ste-Cécile International School collected the headstone data on two occasions of four cemeteries, recording the following information:

  • Family name + other names
  • Dates of death - if available: day, month and year
  • type of headstone: Flush Marker; Upright headstone; Column Marker; Cross Marker
  • condition of headstone
  • photograph of headstone
  • location - using the GPS enabled mobile device

The "team" has done it's best in recording the information as accurately as possible. If there are errors, please contact us and we will correct it.
