One of the purposes of having a Columbarium is to provide a final resting place for the deceased. Family and Friends can visit and remember those who have passed on. For those who cannot visit St. Thomas, and for future generations, there is a new way to visit the grave site on http://www.tpsurvey.org. To find listings for the St. Thomas Columbarium:
- Select “Burials” on the left side.
- Select “St. Thomas Columbarium” from the list of cemeteries
The list of internments gives: name, birth and death dates, columbarium niche locations. The right most field is a link to a site called FInd-A-Grave (www.findagrave.com). Here you can see a short biography of the individual which includes information from their death notice and a photograph of their individual plaque. There are over 900 million burials recorded on Find-A-Grave covering cemeteries worldwide.
The information on each internment can be updated or expanded by contacting Leland (Lee) Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 513-831-6741. Obituaries, photographs, and other information may be added to give a more complete picture of the deceased.
