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.
|Changes to services due to COVID-19
To help limit the spread of COVID-19 and support Alberta’s Stage 3 reopening, The City of Calgary Cemeteries administration office will remain closed to walk-in public inquiries, but open to essential services by appointment only. Masks are required during appointments. Over the coming weeks the administration office will begin to open in a staged approach, mitigating risk to the public and ensuring the cemetery’s continuation of service.
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.
Based on the current provincial health restrictions, effective July 1, 2021:
Graveside services are no longer restricted but appropriate physical distancing is suggested.
The Mausoleum is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, distancing and masking requirements remain in effect.
