Avondale cemetery, Stratford, Ontario, Canada Look Up

Surnames: O'Leary
I was told my great grandparents were buried in Avondale cemetery in Stratford but I can't find them listed on Avondale's database. Would anyone be able to check for me to see if they are buried there along with their six children? Timothy Patrick O'Leary, born about 1838, died 1911. His wife, Mary Margaret O'Shea O'Leary, born about 1839, died May 24, 1877. They also had six children buried there as well. Thank you so much!

The cemetery database shows Timothy interred on 30 Jun 1911, and about 6 or 7 other O'Learys interred the next week. In total there are 14 O'learys shown. They report Timothy Sr. as being in the St. John section, #047 - E -1/2.

Did you go to the city website?
Did you remove the apostrophe?

Hi Jim,
Oh, I found the website and no, I didn't remove the apostrophe. Now I see them. It seems odd they were interned on the same day. Would you know how to contact the cemetery itself so I can try to obtain pictures of the graves or any other information they may have in their files?
Thank you again!!!

The City of Stratford has changed their website and the link no longer works. The new website is crap and I cannot find a link to the cemetery anywhere!

It appears they are updating their database. Maybe you can check this website. They have a phone number you can call for assistance until their database is completed.
