Through the Comox Valley Family History Research Group, we ran across a page on the cemeteries of that area. The group has transcribed graves at the Courtenay Civic Cemetery, the Cumberland Cemetery, the Denman Island Cemetery and the Hornby Island Cemetery; these are available by emailing the group.
This page led us to the British Columbia Cemetery Finding Aid, which “contains more than 344,000 entries and includes 264 British Columbia cemeteries and 2 Washington state cemeteries.” You can search by surname, cemetery, location or region.
John Murray, the name of both the Port Moody pioneer and Royal Engineer and his son who named many of Port Moody’s streets, yielded 58 entries.
Once a researcher narrows down the search, he or she can use the resulting reference number to contact other organizations for more information. A very good tool for those of us interested in geneaology!
