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.
Originally a look-out for indigenous people, this hill-top graveyard commands a view of both the south-side and downtown.
Burials at the cemetery began well before the 20th century making Mount Pleasant a truly historical cemetery. Many prominent members of the community are interred here and their markers help tell the story of Strathcona’s roots and reflect the turn of the century boom town.
