Graveside ceremony attendance limit has been increased to 20 people, with mandatory masking and 2 metre physical distancing. Funeral receptions are still not allowed. Indoor interment gatherings are restricted to up to 10 people.
With the provincial measures recently announced, Municipal Cemeteries has both walk-in services (payments/map requests) and in-person appointments available at Beechmount, South Haven and Mount Pleasant. We request all patrons and clients to abide by all Government of Alberta health protocols and posted signage.
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.
