Hi Ian,
The reference number tells you who the organization is that contributed the
information. i.e. MX is the London Middlesex Branch of the Ontario
Genealogical Society and the number 152, I believe is the publication
number. You can order the cemetery transcrpt from them or they may do a
lookup for you. There is a list of all the contributing organization on the
OCFA web site. It has all the addresses and those that are online they have
a link to their site. Hope this helps.
Surrey, BC
