  • Dead Canadians Featured on CBC

    m cemeteries--feature-1

    CBC Radio 1's popular radio programme "The Current" invited the Dead Canadians group to help celebrate Canada Day 2013.  You can listen to the podcast on the CBC Radio 1 web site.  http://www.cbc.ca/thecurrent/episode/2013/07/01/finding-the-graves-of-famous-canadians/.

    "In cemeteries across Canada, many famous Canadians are buried. A group called Dead Canadians have visited hundreds of cemeteries documenting the final resting place of famous men and women who are part of our history. Hear why we should all care more about the silent majority of dead Canadians."

  • Why a Dead Canadians Web Site?

    album cover2

    The Dead Canadians group consists of 4 friends who are dedicated to researching cemeteries and documenting the final resting place of Canadians who have made a difference. It is about celebrating Canadian achievement and marking the lives of those who have had a positive impact on Canada.

    The Dead Canadians web site was created out of a love for history, day-tripping and esoteric trivia to thrill and delight your friends and colleagues. It was conceived to highlight some famous Canadians, along with a biography, their claim to fame and a map to their final resting place. 


  • Cemeteries as Cultural Record

    m angel

    Older cemeteries are visible, tangible links with people who made history -- ordinary individuals as well as famous people. The inscriptions on their monuments tell us not only their names and dates, but often where they lived, their occupation and affiliations, the manner of their death, personal traits that survivors held dear, and names of relatives. These inscriptions instruct us about local, medical, and material history, cultural geography, historical archaeology, folklore, genealogy, and much more.

  • Criteria

    Consideration is not restricted to those who were Canadian citizens.  Criteria for acceptance to the Dead Canadians web site is a combination of the following:

    - They must be dead (mandatory)
    - They must have had a positive impact on Canada or Canadians
    - They may have been part of an event or disaster that had an impact on Canada or Canadians
    - They can not be known for illicit or illegal behaviour

    If you would like to nominate someone for the Dead Canadians web site, please contact us.
