City of Calgary Cemeteries

City of Calgary Cemeteries

The City of Calgary operates six cemeteries and an indoor mausoleum where families can honour and remember loved ones. 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. We encourage the use of cemetery grounds for not only remembering a loved one but also for passive activities like walking, cycling, nature observation and historical research.

Service updates

The City of Calgary Cemeteries administration office is closed to walk-in public inquiries but open to essential services by appointment only. Masks are required during appointments.

Advance planning, memorialization appointments and all other inquiries will be handled through direct telephone calls or emails to the administration office. Client families are asked to contact the administration office directly by phoning 403-221-3660 or emailing calgarycemeteries@calgary.ca

There are no capacity restrictions on graveside services, but physical distancing is required.

The Queen’s Park mausoleum is open for services and for public visitation from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. Masks are required while inside the mausoleum.
