Due to new COVID-19 restrictions, indoor and outdoor interment gatherings are restricted to up to 10 people.
Due to the new provincial measures recently announced on December 8, 2020, Cemeteries will be temporarily suspending our walk-in services. We will continue to offer in-person customer appointments at Beechmount, South Haven and Mount Pleasant.
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.
