“If you like cemeteries, you're in for a treat. Ross Bay Cemetery, established in the late 1800's, is the final resting place for many notable and interesting individuals including Emily Carr (artist), the Rogers family (chocolatier), and victims of the SS Princess Sophia which has been referred to as the "Titanic of the West Coast".
