    have you any records of a Dr J W Giffen or of George Evans Funeral Director in the 1950s. I am trying to find any records of my grandfather Alexander Grant who lived in Gleichen from the late 30s till his death in June 1950.

    Thank you

      I don’t have any of the records for either of those people but was your grandfather buried in the Gleichen cemetery? If so I can see if I can find his headstone and any info from it. I’ll also ask some of the people who lived in town back then.

      I checked and I found out that the Glenbow Museum in Calgary has all the records for Dr. John Giffen

      The info isn’t available online but if your ever in Calgary they allow people to access records but you need to call them first.
