For years, Tom Lowe and a team of active and retired RCMP officers have been scouring the obituaries and cemeteries of Nova Scotia looking for lost members.

“I’d go to funerals and make contact with some family member,” Lowe says.

“I’d watch and see who’s being introduced around and try to find a son or daughter of the member who’d passed away. I’d give them my card and say, ‘When you get to the point where you’re trying to select a grave marker, get in touch. You’re entitled to a certain one, free of charge.’ A lot of them just didn’t know.”
