Welcome back to the third and final part of a Grave Situation cemeteries in Dutton Dunwich. In October 2021, the Dutton Dunwich Municipal Heritage Committee hosted an outdoor Doors Open inviting people to visit 10 of our local cemeteries. We were mostly interested in showing unique grave marker designs, symbolism and iconography versus the stories of the usual prominent citizens. I suggest you download the brochures to your phone or print them off and take a walk around the cemeteries using the podcast as an audio guide, pausing where needed to get to the next marker. Make it a family outing. Special thanks to the 2021 municipal heritage committee members Delany Leitch, Blair Ferguson, Laurence Grant, Ron Ross, Angela Bobier, Elaine Brown (who we miss very much), Municipal Planner Tracy Pilon-Abbs, Deputy Mayor Mike Hentz, Municipal Staff member Kate Morreau and all volunteers who assisted in Doors Open 2021.
I hope you’ve enjoyed part three whether you chose to just listen of to visit the cemetery using our podcast as an audio guide. Did you find all the stones mentioned? Again thank you to the entire Municipal Heritage Committee for their work on this project and ongoing heritage work.
Return in two weeks for our next episode!
