Service description

City Cemeteries provides interment (i.e. burials and cremations), maintenance of final resting locations and memorialization products. We also provide almost 100 hectares of historically and culturally significant public space.

The City has one active operating cemetery (Queen's Park), a new cemetery under development (south Calgary) and four historic cemeteries (Union, Burnsland, Chinese and St. Mary's). We have an obligation in perpetuity to Calgarians to maintain cemetery sites.
