Beechmount Cemetery is one of the City’s historical cemeteries, dating back to the early 1900s.
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, community groups have requested sections be set aside for their members and often linguistic, religious and cultural groups are found together.
Beechmount was the first cemetery started by the City. 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.
