BOOK & CD - Who Departed This Life, A History of the Old Protestant Burying Ground Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.
By George Wright

Softcover... 19.95 (C$)
Spanning several acres - and in existence during four centuries - the cemetery known as the Old Burying Ground is prominently located behind a wrought iron fence on University Avenue in downtown Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

It is the final resting ground for up to 4,000 souls who were interred between the late 1700s and 1873.

The Burying Ground has withstood the ravages of time - and vandalism - but in recent years great efforts have been made to restore the grounds, offering respect to those departed colonial pioneers who established the city and the province.

Who Departed This Life chronicles the burying ground from its creation through to its closure and subsequent restoration efforts, culminating in its Millennium restoration (1999-2004).

Included in this book is a list of the remaining tombstones, as well as a CD listing 3,205 interments. Informationon the CD includes:
  • Surname
  • Given Names
  • Stone #
  • Sources
  • Age
  • Date of death
  • Notes
In celebration of the lives of our forefathers and foremothers, the book includes approximately 80 short biographies of those interred, along with stories of their families.

176 pages; 6 X 9; paperback; name index; family biography index; index of biography authors; alphabetical catologue of head stones; illus; notes; photos; pub. 2005; ISBN 1-894838-18-1
