Beechmount Cemetery is one of the City’s historical cemeteries, dating back to the early 1900s.

Starting September 20, in compliance with the newly announced Government of Alberta health protocols and restrictions, indoor interment services at Mount Pleasant cemetery's indoor niche and Edmonton Cemetery's mausoleum will be restricted to a maximum of 10 visitors.

Masks and physical distancing are required at all indoor facilities. Hand hygiene continues to be recommended. For more details, visit edmonton.ca/covid19.

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.
