This is the final resting place of Margaret (1887) and Richard (1915) Crew located in the cemetery of St. John’s Norway Anglican Church. The original parish (pictured in background of the photo above) was established in 1853 in the former Town of Norway, now located in the Kingston Road and Woodbine Avenue area.

Construction of the church that stands today began in 1893.

If you look closely (photo below) you can see the family kept the original base of the replaced Crew headstone.

Do you have any old photographs of Kingston Road you would like to share with our readership?
