I found the gravestone of my great-grandfather at Edmonton today. What
was unusual was that, as well as the upright stone with the normal
inscription, there was a second stone lying horizontal also with an

As far as I can tell, the inscription across the top of the horizontal
stone reads "The Gitomer & Talner Divisional Benefit Society" across
the top.
Can anyone tell me about this society and why a grave would have two stones
If anyone would like to see a photo, please let me know
Many thanks
