Ross Bay Cemetery

On the eastern side of Clover Point is a large semicircular bay called Ross Bay. It's named after one of the early factors of the Hudson's Bay Company who had a farm on the shores of the bay. That farm became the Ross Bay Cemetery after the death of his widow and it contains the graves of many Victorians who were prominent in the early days of the city. Next week we'll look at what I saw when I recently spent an afternoon there.

I love wandering around in old cemeteries. We have so many here, and a lot of the graves date to the late 1600s and early 1700s. Some of the stones are so worn you can't read them anymore.

This particular tombstone is amazing. I should get out to Beechwood here in the spring. A number of well known people are buried there, including a prime minister or two.
