Barnett “Barney” Aaronson

Birth: June 27, 1857 in Chelsea, London, England

Death: July 19, 1925 (aged 68) in Victoria, B.C.

Note: There are three Aaronsons  (Barnett “Barney”, Hannah and Rachel)  interred in this cemetery, for whom the exact burial location is uncertain. There is one plot (Row D – Plot 17) with a rectangular marker inscribed “Aaronson” but  it is not possible to determine which of these three Aaronsons  it commemorates; it may be intended to mark one or all three graves.

Barney lived in Victoria for over 40 years and was involved in a number of businesses including pawnbroker, and junk dealer.
