Mount Royal Cemetery Photo Request
Mount Royal Cemetery has 165 acres. The burial plot location must be supplied so a volunteer can go take the photo.

You can get this free information by filling the form here: and in the "Desired Service" field, select "Burial Location (free)" and enter the information.

If the Genealogy page was not helpful then email your request to

The cemetery will email you the location (3-10 working days).

Have the memorial updated with the plot number.

You will have made it possible for the photo to be taken.

Anna and John Hefferan
I took photos for these two, that are buried next to Maude Griffis. Due to the age difference, it looks as though John Hefferan could be Maud's father, and Anna could be her grandmother. I'll leave it up to you to figure it out! I hope this helps your research.

Best regards,

RE: Maud Griffis photo request.
Yes of course, I will get the photos on my next trip. Too bad there is no headstone for Maud and Bob. I am always disappointed when that happens.

Maud Griffis photo request.
Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request but unfortunately, it is a photo of the area, only. There is no marker. The office staff confirmed this. Please see the photo caption for explanation of where exactly the grave is located. She shares the grave with Bob Griffis. Do you know if he in fact was her husband? I created a memorial for him based on the cemetery record and the California Death Index. There is also a May Griffis buried in the row below them, a little to the south. Her grave is marked. I've added a photo to her existing memorial.

I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome.

Best regards,

Hello Dave

Here is what the cemetery tells me. She was cremated, and although she died about a year ago, her ashes have not yet been buried. In a bizzare coincidence, they tell me the ashes are scheduled to be buried this weekend. I don't know if there will be s marker placed at the time of burial, but I will check at the beginning of the week and let you know.

Lumpkin family
It started raining while I was taking photos, but was trying to get all of the Lumpkin name, so some may look wet. This name caught my eye.... it was my grandfather's first name. Found one child named Gladys who did not have the p in her last name...think they may have run out of room putting her name in.
