McCorquodale, Nettie
in case you wondered, Nettie's neighbours Martin and Guri Sorflaten have a gravestone of their own, and Osbourne and Ivor Sorflaten have a gravestone of their own. I will add the pictures sometime this week.

McCorquodale
I was at Brookside today, and it appears the photos for Donald and Nettie McCorquodale are indeed the correct locations.
For Nettie, it appears my excel spreadsheet listed the occupants of plot D2-1815-0 in slightly the wrong order. Immediately to the left of the Barry gravestone are gravestones for the Robinson family. Below is a revised list for Nettie and her neighbours:
D2-1813-0 Sorflaten Martin 38195 04/05/1949 04/07/1949
D2-1813-0 Sorflaten Guri 61606 7/15/1968 7/18/1968
D2-1813-0 Sorflaten Osbourne 26379 09/02/1937 09/04/1937
D2-1814-0 Sorflaten Ivor 71414 12/18/1976 12/22/1976
D2-1815-0 McCorquodale Nettie 82029 1/22/1986 9/16/1986
D2-1815-0 Barrie Annie 26337 08/07/1937 08/09/1937
D2-1815-0 Barry James 34678 3/20/1946 3/22/1946
D2-1816-0 Robinson Elina 26330 08/03/1937 08/05/1937
D2-1816-0 Robinson Henry Emmerson 27911 6/29/1939 07/06/1939

McCorquodale
the actual death registration for genealogy purposes from the Manitoba government costs about $10. It will also name the cemetery. In 1937 this registration will contain a large amount of information, such as names of parents and the date and place of birth. But we'll look a bit more for gravestones first.

Donald McCorquodale
The burial number for Donald McCorquodale is 26197 (as per the spreadsheet). This is consistent with the other burials in 1937.
I am considering phoning the Glen Eden Cemetery to see if they have Donald McCorquodale and what his plot number is over there. Or what other McCorquodale's are buried there. I even might use a small hand trowel just to check if there is a stone that sank into the ground in Brookside. I have seen cemetery staff use real shovels, but if I did that it would look very suspicious :) The old parts of Brookside don't have many visitors.

McCorquodale Donald
Actually, in light of what I said about Nettie McCorquodale, I cannot be sure that the photo for Donald is the right plot until I see what name is on the nearby stones. The direction (left to right, or right to left) does not mater, since it constantly changes in this cemetery. It seems like there are twenty different systems operating in this huge cemetery. :)

McCorquodale Nettie
Hi, For Nettie McCorquodale, it appears the photo should have been taken on the other side of James and Annie Barry. This is because of the Sorflaten gravestone on the right. But this is an easy mistake to make, if you are taking pictures of plots that don't have gravestones.

McCorquodale Donald
Hi, the information I just sent to you comes from my spreadsheet for Brookside, and in those records Donald McCorquodale died June 10, 1937 and was buried June 12, 1937. Wilma Morrison and her baby are in the neighbouring plots, therefore the photo that Roslein took is the right location for plot 22-1198-0
I will note that sometimes the cemetery records for this cemetery, in about the 1930s and earlier, only record the name of who paid for the burial plot, and sometimes the gravestone (when one exists) says there is a second person buried there as well (usually husband or wife). If someone's son paid for the plot, its possible that the records might only show the son's name. I haven't seen that in this cemetery, but I know that has happened in some other cemeteries I know of.

RE: Donald Paul McCorquodale 1937
Hi, I am trying to confirm where the middle name came from. It could have come from an edit from another person but I have thousands of them to look through. I see his obit only has Donald, as does the cemetery record and his death record - so you ask a good question. I will see what I can find out about his middle name and get back to you.
