The City of Calgary operates five cemeteries and an indoor mausoleum where families can honour and remember a loved one. Our cemeteries are unique reminders of our past, present and future. Each cemetery offers a distinct experience, and we encourage all Calgarians to visit these special places. All City cemeteries are open to the public every day from sunrise to sunset.
