Photo Service

If you’re researching your family tree or simply want to complete your family photographic records, the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board can provide photos of the memorial or headstone of a loved one.

Photos are available in digital format or as standard-size photographic prints.

Photos of headstones taken prior to Cemetery Renewal are provided free of charge to family members.

Photos that require our staff to visit the grounds to acquire the image will incur a fee.

Each purchase of a photograph will include a shot of the entire gravesite and, if available, a close up of the headstone bearing the inscription requested.

Please note: there may not be a headstone on the grave you have requested. We will not know this until we visit the gravesite. For this reason the fee is not refundable if there is no headstone.

To purchase photographs complete the photograph purchase request and return it to us.

Please forward the completed request form by email to or post to:
