Photos of the Pioneer Cemetery at Whitehorse, Yukon

Whitehorse Pioneer Cemetery, Yukon
This double grave was discovered by Ground Penetrating Radar during a survey of the cemetery in February 2018. There was no sign of it on the surface, but when the soil was dug back during the final stages of the cemetery renovation in October 2018, this large concrete vault was found. The largest pair of graves in the Pioneer Cemetery, the plots were owned by T.C. Richards and his wife Bernadine, who died in 1961 and 1956 respectively. They were re-interred at Grey Mountain Cemetery so the graves are empty
