The Ross bay Cemetary is a very beautiful and old cemetary in Victoria. Right on the water, it is very peaceful to walk through the graves and see how far back the history in Victoria goes.

Located on the oceans edge in Victoria. Across from historic houses and sometimes there are tours. Many of Victoria's famous characters and memorable names are buried here.

Emily Carr is burried here and this is the main attraction. Lots of ghosts here and I believe a tour is offered as well.

This place is a favourite with some local favorites buried here but we also have family buried here so a great genealogy find. Staff bend over backwards to help you out and they have a wonderful vault wit the original books of people buried there. They are also digital now.

Printed of an online walking tour of the Cemetery and enjoyed spending 45 minutes walking through the historic site. Worth visiting with self-guided or paid tour.
