Ross Bay Cemetery – Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria

Recently did a some fall photos at Ross Bay Cemetery. Always feels a little strange talking about going to Cemeteries but Circle of Life and all…

In the process found nice resource at Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria.

Ross Bay Cemetery has the oldest surviving formal landscape design in BC and is a superb example of a Victorian-era burial ground. Its profusion of unusual trees and plantings, winding carriageways, graves with intriguing marble, sandstone and granite monuments, all bear witness to the people buried here.
