The Trask book has for Camp Hill just a few photos of specific stones ordetail as examples of carvers' work.  She does mention that Camp Hill has cast iron gravemarkers from the 1840s, that cast iron markers were relatively infrequent in NS and most were from the the Foundrys of William Johns or W. D. Faulkner, both in Halifax.  Seems the Johns Foundary, was most active in 1840-1850s and has about 12 markers at Camp Hill, several rusted w/raised lettering worn beyond legibility. Faulkner's markers (of
about the same period) had a place to insert information on paper under glass, all now washed away. Seems Faulkner's markers were sold all over NS because of the ease with which they could be "personalized" from stock, but cast iron monuments were never very popular. Trask includes photographs of detail from the stones of Darling Eva Doull, 1872 and Jonas Johnson, 1867 at Camp Hill. Also photos of the Gould/Ryan stones at Camp Hill, c. 1944 from the Keddy Monument Works (as examples of granite work).
