Comments for the PublicTo find an existing grave if cemetery, crematorium or funeral home is known:  
* cemetery office will have the grave number  
* crematorium will have a record of the cremation, and of interment of ashes (if interred there)  
* funeral home will have the information it was given at the time of the funeral, including cemetery or crematorium name, but may not have a record of where ashes were interred, if they were interred at a later date 
 
To find an existing grave if cemetery, crematorium or funeral home are not known: information may appear in a newspaper obituary or the cemetery inscription may have been transcribed 
Burlington Central Library has resources to search for date of death information and obituaries * microfilm of historical and modern newspapers * transcriptions of local pioneer cemeteries * Genealogy Links with Cemetery Records and Obituaries finding aids 
 
Ontario cemeteries and crematoria can be searched on the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Affairs website by location, municipality, county or owner's name
