Gravestones in Calgary, Alberta: Some Interesting Information


Gravestones, also known as grave markers in an earlier time, are memorials placed on the grave to commemorate loved ones. Gravestone inscriptions include the name of the deceased, date of birth, date of death, and a few words about the deceased as requested by relatives or friends. Grave markers dated back to 3000 B.C. were megalithic monuments marking an entire burial chamber or a group burial site. Gravestones became popular with the establishment of churches and burials in the 1650s.
