Once the edge of the city’s limits, now bisected by a busy thoroughfare, this cemetery contains the city’s oldest and most architecturally diverse monuments.
Graves in the Edmonton Cemetery are oriented east and west, while graves in the Catholic Cemetery are oriented north and south.
Many of Edmonton’s original settlers and founders are buried here and you may recognize their names as Edmonton schools, neighbourhoods, and roadways. Within this cemetery is the Military Field of Honour, established in 1922. Marker stones are laid out with no distinctions between rank or file of the veterans. A mausoleum was completed in the fall of 1930 – where Emily Murphy of the Famous Five is buried.
