BOOKS - Beechwood Cemetery Burial Records, Monument Inscriptions and Interment Registry Index 1873-1997 (Ottawa, Ontario Canada)
Recorded by members of the Ottawa Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS)
Originally published by Ottawa Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS), Ottawa, 1990-1999
This edition redesigned and published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2017


Beechwood Cemetery, located at 280 Beechwood Avenue, in Ottawa, Ontario, "is the National Cemetery of Canada. It is the final resting place for over 75,000 Canadians from all walks of life, such as important politicians like Governor General Ramon Hnatyshyn and Prime Minister Sir Robert Borden, Canadian Forces Veterans, War Dead, members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and men and women who have made a mark on Canadian history. In addition to being Canada's National Cemetery, it is also the National Military Cemetery of Canada and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police National Memorial Cemetery" (wikipedia). A woodland cemetery founded in 1873, it is 64.7 hectares (160 acres) and is the largest cemetery in the city of Ottawa.

This is the most comprehensive record of those who rest in Beechwood Cemetery, and/or are mentioned on memorial stones.

The first book in this series,Beechwood Cemetery Monument Inscriptions includes careful transcriptions of all memorial stones that were in the cemetery when the transcriptions were completed in 1985. About 65,000 people are recorded. It is critical to also check vols 1-5 of the Interment Registry Indexes. There are thousands more names in the interment registers than on the memorial stones, sometimes with more or conflicting information. Not all burials have a memorial stone -- some old memorial stones may have been missing by the time that this project was undertaken.

Volumes 1-5 of Interment Registry Indexes are transcripts of the cemetery's burial records and interment registers. It is important to check both the memorial stone transcriptions and the burial records insofar as there are thousands of recorded burials that no memorial stones were erected for. There are names that appear on momuments that are not recorded in the interment registers. There are also instances of the memorial stone having different information than the burial register. Volumes 1-5 includes burial records up to 1873-1997, which covers 12 years more than the Beechwood Cemetery Monument Inscriptions book was completed. The pdf editions are digitally searchable (.pdf format)

NOTE about print quality:
GlobalGenealogy.com Inc. entered into a publishing agreement with the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society in 2016, to publish current and future books as well as to bring all of their previously published works back into print. We are pleased to make their books available once again under our Global Heritage Press imprint. Each book has been reprinted as it was prepared by the volunteers of the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, without additional corrections or additions, though the Branch often made additions and corrections over the years since a title was originally printed. All additions and revisions by the Branch are included in this edition. Modern technology enabled us reproduce the original work in as good as, or better quality than when originally published. Most of the early titles were created on a typewriter and reproduced by Gestetner and early photocopiers. Many of the masters were digitized from these original paper masters by the Ottawa Branch. The remainder, we scanned from archived paper copies. We've cleaned up the masters as best as was possible without re-keying all of the content. The result is a collection of books that are useful and complete, but of a print quality that reflects the technology of the time in which they were originally published. The earlier titles are clearly readable but not of the same high quality print of later books. The foregoing also affects the thoroughness of search results in digital versions of some early titles. Early editions included fonts that are not recognized by modern digital search tools. We advise readers to always check indexes and alphabetical listings and not to rely solely on the digital search feature.
