|Hello. I got interested in building our family trees for myself and my husband after I was reading a novel. This led to eventually getting referenced to Find A Grave, from my second cousin. Originally I used the site to try to find more ancestors and now I'm thinking of adding our own local cemetery.|

|Alberta Ann||RE: Description of Wainwright Cemetery|
Regarding the following request you had made a while back, I wanted to let you know I didn't forget about it. I would really like to add it to the description of the photo, but I am sorry I don't seem to be able to access an "edit" on this site or whatever is required to do so. If you can find a way or if anybody can help me, please let me know and I will be pleased to add the information you gave.
"Description of Wainwright Cemetery
Hello, I was wondering if you would be willing to add this description that I found for the Wainwright Cemetery, for Wainwright Alberta. I just thought it would be a neat bit of history to add to it. (This is courtesy of a search I did on the Internet)
Though many residents and crews working on the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway were buried on this plot by 1911 it was not until 1925 that the town received title to the land because it belonged to the crown. As a centennial project in 1966 a wroght iron sign was erected at the cemetery's entrance.
