St. Mark’s has long enjoyed a cordial partnership with the School of Restoration Arts at Willowbank. Over the past ten years their students have, under the direction of Thomas Neumeyer, world authority on stone restoration, restored fifteen of St. Mark’s badly deteriorated monuments. It may be of interest to note that we have the oldest and one of the most important cemeteries in Ontario.
The following videos, starring Donald Combe, sexton at St Mark’s, are based on his extensive knowledge of the many historic and fascinating characters buried in the cemetery.
The videos are fun and easy to watch but have been carefully researched and offer an excellent and unique historic insight.
