Name of creator
The Committee on Camp Hill Cemetery was a standing committee of the City of Halifax that replaced the board of Commissioners of Camp Hill Cemetery in about 1924. Charged with managing and controlling Camp Hill Cemetery, the six members of the board were appointed by the mayor, approved by council, and chose their own chairman. The committee was dissolved in 1941 when the Committee of Works became responsible for managing city cemeteries.
