Though most are memorialized with small gray granite markers with the name and date of death, some families paid for larger markers with more inscriptions. The occupants of a third of the graves have never been identified and their markers contain just the date of death and marker number.
|One of the markers was for an unidentified child victim,|
known as The Unknown Child. No one claimed the body.
With forensic testing, the unknown child was identified
as 19-month-old Sidney Leslie Goodwin, an English
child who perished with his entire family.
Also in the cemetery is a memorial for the identified victims of the Halifax Explosion.
