Research Services >> Photo Service

If you’re researching your family tree, or simply want to complete your family photographic records, the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board can provide photos of the memorial or headstone of a loved one.

Photos are available in digital format or as standard size photographic prints.

Each purchase of a photograph will include a shot of the entire gravesite and if available, a close up of the headstone bearing the inscription requested.

Please note: there may not be a headstone on the grave you have requested. We will not know this until we visit the gravesite. For this reason, the fee is not refundable if there is no headstone.

To purchase, complete the form below and return it to us with your payment.
