Lookup York Co., newspaper obituary/cemetery lookup

Lookup York Co., newspaper obituary/cemetery lookup

Classification: Query
Surnames: Nelson, Burley
I have finally located a gg aunt, one who it was supposed had come to Canada but until just recently, couldn't be confirmed nor could she be located.
Isabelle (Nelson) Burley is buried in St. John's Norway Cemetery in Toronto according to her death certificate although there doesn't seem to be a record of her buried there. If someone has access to a transcription for this cemetery, would you mind taking a look to see if she is recorded in what info you have at your disposal. Further, she died Nov 21, 1931. If anyone has access to newspaper obituaries, would you mind having a look to see if there was ever one published for her.
I would really appreciate any help in learning a little more about Isabelle. Thank you for your time!

I have the transcript and I didn't find her on it using both surnames. That doesn't mean she isn't buried there only people with gravestones are on the transcript so she could be there. I'll check the two papers for Toronto that I can access through the library if there is no obit there it might be in the Toronto Telegram which can only be access through microfilm at the Library.

Thank you so much for your help. I had found a cemetery list online, with no mention of her but had to wonder if it was complete. I appreciate you taking the time to look at your transcript of the cemetery. This Isabelle has been a real mystery. The only thing family has ever passed down about her was that she was known as the "black sheep" of the family and it was thought she had immigrated to Canada at some point. It was just this past couple weeks I learned more, which led me to her marrying an Edwin Burley in 1899, Toronto, then on to her death certificate. Still a lot of questions to answer about Isabelle. She did have a daughter out of wedlock in Scotland who I still have to relocate. Again, thank you for your help. I really do appreciate your time very much.

Hi there,

I don't know if you remember me but we have exchanged emails before. I found some articles for your father in law about a street car accident.

I have found something about Isabelle that will help you. Do you still have the same email address? Send me a private message if it has changed.

Hi

I just sent the email to the address I had. Will you let me know that you got it okay please. I also forgot to attach the information from the St John's Norway transcripts I have. If you want that let me know. It says the same as what the grave stone says.
