William “Bill” Britnell
May 6, 1944 - February 7, 2018

Bill BritnellIt is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our friend and colleague Bill Britnell. Bill will be remembered for his kindness and dedication to St. James’ Cemetery & Crematorium. As our resident volunteer genealogist Bill assisted many families locating their families’ final resting place whether it was here at St. James’ or another cemetery across the province. Bill was often able to assist those requesting family information by providing valuable family history not previously known to them. Bill will also be sadly missed by his many friends and colleagues from the Ontario Genealogical Society. Bill was an intricate part of our historic cemetery and we will miss not only his companionship but his knowledge and expertise. May Peace be with you.
