I have just got a reused envelope from 1941 with the Cramersburg, Saskatchewan split ring cancellation.



Google maps only shows a space in the middle of Saskatchewan and Bing maps has nothing but a road (32) near by. The only reference I can find on line is to a cemetery at what is descried as the "former Dutch Village" of Cramersburg. The original address was a William De Vry.

None of the references I have here in the UK have any info. as to when the post office here shut and what happened to the village. I assume that it was just abandoned.

Can anyone please fill in some gaps the write up is looking a bit devoid of facts at he moment..

J2186. Thank you for that information. That is the sort of thing I was looking for
