Bio and Links
I am a truck driver and would be willing to do searches in and around Edmonton and Sherwood Park Alberta. I have limited time off but will try to do look ups as soon as possible. As soon as I take the picture it is yours to do with what you want. I have been doing genealogy research for quite a while and I do request pictures for my tree also so please use them as you see fit. You do not have to ask permission to use the pictures as I am hoping I can help people out there find the markers they are looking for. Please use them for your sites as you wish.

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.

Johann Kempf # 134669610
I added photos today for Johann Kempf. Unfortunately, the marker is in poor condition. I was able to identify it based on an online cemetery transcription.

I added a photo of the marker and the KEMPF plot. Double click on the plot photo to read the caption as to who is buried where. Hopefully, that will help you in your research.

I hope to get back to the cemetery in about a week. If you'd like, I could try to uncover more of the marker, but judging by the condition of the marker, I don't believe we'd get any more information.

Sorry - hope the plot photo helps!

Gustav Frank Photo
Hi Colin,
Thank you very much for the great photo of the Gustav Frank headstone. Could I please request the same photo be submitted for Gustav's wife Susanna Hemminger Frank.
I appreciate all your time that you have put in and work you have done. Just super!
It is nice to see the final resting place of our loved ones.
All the best to you,

just a note to suggest that you make sure the person you are creating a memorial for is not already listed. Rule of thumb is that the newest entry be removed, however since you have already added a photo and it is the Christmas season I shall remove the entry I made in Jan 2012
