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.
The large stone gateway at the entrance of the cemetery continues to stand as a humble but impressive tribute to the courage and vision of our pioneers.
Clover Bar Cemetery was created in 1901 behind the Clover Bar Church. Homesteader W.H. Wilkinson donated his land for the cemetery. Wilkinson and nine other local residents formed a cemetery company. In 1931, they erected a stone gateway to the cemetery as a permanent jubilee memorial to commemorate 50th anniversary of the arrival of the first Clover Bar settlers. It consists of two stone posts with stone wings and a set of heavy steel gates. The City of Edmonton purchased the land in 1995.
