"Our cemetery, even more than 100 years as the Rockyford Union Cemetery, who knows what type of markers were ever put in place for these graves at the turn of the century, and they aren't there anymore," explained Mayor of Rockyford, Darcy Burke.
The project has been three years in the running, said Burke, and is a prime example of what a small town can do together as a community.
"We brought a survey company in, and completely GPS-ed and surveyed the entire cemetery, we also went one step further and we hired a company with a density scanner, and they scanned the property, and it showed us where the soil had been disturbed at, marking out where graves were that are now unmarked," continued Burke.
The crosses were handmade by Burke in his shop and installed by a group of volunteers who braved the chilly weather on Tuesday.
"We had 30 unmarked graves in that cemetery. Through this process of community volunteers and some community money, now we have a permanent marker signifying those graves for families to come and visit their loved ones at their final resting place," concluded Burke.
The community has made a point of making sure their cemetery is up to snuff by also hiring out a company to rehabilitate existing gravestones.
