Bio and Links
We both enjoy the hobby of genealogy, and value the information that can often be gleaned from grave markers. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO MAKE USE OF ANY PHOTOS WE'VE POSTED TO ENHANCE YOUR FAMILY TREE. Once we're retired (in a few more years), we plan to become more active as photo volunteers to be able to contribute more.

FYI: We are working towards photographing all of the approximately 2900 grave markers at the Veteran's Cemetery in Esquimalt - Sections AA, BB, D, E, F & OFFICE have been completed - Section CC is in progress. The rest to follow. If you'd like a photo not yet uploaded (or a retake on any existing photo), please post a photo request, and we will get it at the first opportunity.

Willman families from British Columbia
Hey I found some of my distant relatives that were born in Norway and moved to British Columbia, Canada, and I was wondering if you lookup obituaries too?

RE: Edwin Nelson Coles - buried at Ross Bay Cemetery
Hello Betty & Dan, Thank you so much for the photo of Edward's headstone for our "Honor 100" project. Yes, you are correct. His name is Edward and not Edwin. I see you have put in a correction. Thank you. We are also looking for the soldiers photos. If I locate one of Edward, I will post it to the Site. Thanks again! Blessings

Thank you so much for photographing the plot, even without any stone. Much appreciated.

You are so quick, posting the photo within hours of the request!

Many thanks to you both for the photo of Maj Thomas Alexander Cochrane's grave. Without this photo I would not have been able to research the last 30 years of his life. I have uploaded two photos one taken in WW1 and the other WW2. It may interest you to know what he looked like.

Once again, many thanks. Sheila

Robert Hanna
Dear Dan and Betty, Thank you very much for the information you provided me of the grave of my great grandfather Robert Hanna. I also especially appreciated the article of his death from the newspaper and obituary. I was in Canada when I received the information, unfortunately, my iPad would not let me respond to the link to write back to you.

While in Canada though, I was able to share the information with my Aunt, which was her grand father. She only had heard he had died by being kicked in the head, as I was told also. She would like to put a grave stone on the empty grave site. So, I told her I would look into that for her.

I would like to find more of Robert Hanna's relatives in Ireland, so I am hot on the trail.

Thank you again, Shelly Peacock

Hi Betty & Dan,

Thank you so much for taking this photograph and for marking a copy of the photograph with his grave location.That was very quick as I'd just put in the photo request on Friday.

It's very much appreciated.

Would you mind if I used the marked-up photograph on my family tree on Ancestry?

Warmest regards,
