FALLEN WORKERS: Bridgework in Merritton claims worker - St. Catharines Standard

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Abraham and Lillian (Gillard) Pollard. Few details are known about his early life. He was married in October 1912 to Hannah Mary Adams (born December 1892) at Botwood, in the District of Twillingate, Newfoundland.Hannah (a.k.a. Annie or Anna) was the daughter of Adam and Matilda (Jenkins) Adams. Two children were born as a result of this union, a son, Edward, and a daughter, Matilda.In November 1917, Pollard was certified as a fireman and was living at Reserve Mines in Cape Breton, N.S. At some point after this, the family moved to the Niagara area.The 1921 census showed that the Pollard family lived on Burgar Street in Welland.

Deer Lake town council approves crematorium for Main Street funeral home - The Western Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Ball.The mayor said the town researched the issue and the particular unit Parsons Funeral Home is proposing to use.Newfoundland and Labrador does not have emission standards that are specific to crematoriums, but Ball said every indication was that the emissions from the crematorium unit would easily meet all the existing standards in the province.The funeral home is already in a zone designated as commercial, so no rezoning was required to permit the crematorium.Ball said council understands the sensitive nature of the topic, but believes they made the right decision.“Today’s technology has all the checks and balances needed and we don’t think there is any reason for anyone to be alarmed,” he said.Let's block ads!
