Description: Informally organized in 1983, the Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria is a registered non-profit society whose members are "interested in the preservation of Victoria's beautiful and historic cemeteries." Their Web site contains information about walking tours of various cemeteries, most notably Ross Bay Cemetery in the Fairfield neighbourhood of Victoria, and a database completed in 2009 that documents the Old Burying Ground (Pioneer Square) on Quadra Street.

The Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria site was awarded the 2007 BC History Web Site Prize by the BC Historical Federation.
