Ross Bay Cemetery plot books

Series consists of occupancy records of burial plots in Ross Bay Cemetery. The series includes substantially the same information as that captured on the burial permit (CR-0235). Data elements include: permit number, name, age, where born, where died, day and hour of burial, clergyman, block and plot number, undertaker and remarks. The remarks section contains notes on the transfer of plots, reserve plots, exhumations, re-interments, and depths. A name index at the start of each volume gives a cross-reference to a folio in the volume.

The permit number system was not introduced until March 1884.

Ross Bay Cemetery burial permits

Series consists of the City’s copy of burial permits.

Each permit originally consisted of three parts: the City copy, the family copy, and a receipt. Each permit is numbered and captures the following information: name, age, where born, where died, date of death, day and hour of burial, officiating clergy, block, plot and road, undertaker, reserve plots, and fees.

The earliest permits are contained in bound volumes and date from December 1886 to October 1915. In October 1915 the system was changed to a three-part carbon-copy form. And the data collected changed slightly to include cause of death, re-opening, interment, exhumation, and total cost.

Other forms related to the burial may be attached to the burial permit, such as Order for Interment of Body, Medical Certificate of Death, Warrant to Bury After a View, Certificate of Cremation, and other forms and correspondence related to the transportation of remains.

Previous record keeping practices included licences for plots and perpetual maintenance contracts in the burial permitting system. While these records use the same numbering as the burial permits, they are distinct records series with their own access restrictions (see below).
