Tree lined roadways, an impressive salute to veterans, and monuments representing a variety of languages and religious backgrounds, give this cemetery a strong sense of Edmonton’s multicultural community. Over the years a variety of ethnic groups have requested that sections be set aside for their members and often linguistic, religious and ethnic groups are found together.
Beechmount Cemetery is one of the City’s historical cemeteries, dating back to the early 1900s. It was the first cemetery started by the City rather than a private company. A high point in the cemetery’s history came in 1957, with the installation and unveiling of a Cross of Sacrifice in the southwest corner overlooking the Field of Honour.
Beechmount Cemetery Construction
The City of Edmonton is installing a new outdoor columbarium unit, named “The Centennial”, in the southeastern section of Beechmount Cemetery.
A cement pad will be constructed first. After that, the columbarium will be installed on the concrete pad. Construction started in August 2014 and is anticipated to be complete by the end of October.
The construction area will be fenced off. All columbaria units and graves will be accessible to the public during construction of the cement pad and the installation of the new columbarium.
If there are concerns about loved one interred at or near the construction areas, please call 780-442-0974.
