Ross Bay Cemetery is a designated heritage site and one of British Columbia’s most iconic Victorian era cemeteries. John Adams, author of A Historic Guide to Ross Bay Cemetery and long-time member of the Old Cemeteries Society, will trace the origins of the cemetery from 1872 to the present day. Why was the site chosen in what was then an isolated rural area? How was the cemetery designed according to contemporary cemetery ideals? Who are some of the notable (and not so famous) people buried there? How has it evolved?
