On 14 Aug 2013 descendants of those buried in Old LaSalette Cemetery at the corner of Windham Road 10 & Norfolk Road 19 tried to recover cemetery stones lost when the overgrown area was bulldozed in the 1960s. Dozens were buried here between the 1840s and the 1870s. The prize find so far is a footstone marked "J. McC." The work is to continue.
