City of New Westminster The Fraser Cemetery occupies a gorgeous site overlooking the Fraser River making a wonderful place to pass some time, remember the past or just to get away from the worries of the world.
The Fraser Cemetery was established circa 1870.
There are a number of marvelous curiosities at the Fraser Cemetery: a major plot with no marker (at the deceased request); two large trees dominating a stone (planted as seedlings at the time of interment); a monkey puzzle tree which was deliberately planted as a remembrance; four shrubs (now large) in the shape of a square, showing the imaginary outline of a long-gone plot fence; and, many stones of visual or epitaphic interest.
Bob and John, who maintain the grounds, have received many positive comments for their caring and helpfulness to family's in their time of bereavement.
For plot location and other related information, please call Bob at 604-522-1323.
Guided tours of the Cemetery are conducted annually.

City of Surrey - Parks by Amenity Feature - Cemetery Services Cemeteries are an important part of every community.
In addition to providing a final resting place for loved ones, they serve as quiet and peaceful places for friends and family to visit, to reflect, and most importantly - to remember.
Some people visit frequently, others maybe only once or twice, but it is comforting for all to have the peace of mind that their loved ones will be taken care of forever.
This commitment to the ongoing care, maintenance and stewardship of the cemetery is fundamental to the operation of our municipal cemeteries.
For more than 75 years the City of Surrey has been providing cemetery services to the residents of Surrey and surrounding areas.
This legacy continues today in the three cemeteries we currently operate.
Each of the cemeteries is unique and all have space available to accommodate many of your interment needs.
Please take some time to discover more about our cemeteries.

Untitled Document On November 30, 1923 the first interment service passed through the gates of Greater Victoria's new community cemetery, Royal Oak Burial Park.
From that day to the present the Burial Park has been fulfilling the interment, cremation and memorialization needs of the community it serves.
As the largest municipal cemetery in British Columbia it is one of the most historic and picturesque burial parks in Western Canada.
With 135 acres of gently rolling hills nestled discreetly into an urban setting, Royal Oak Burial Park serves as a refuge of tranquillity that is conducive to restful walks and quiet reflection.
Visits to the Burial Park are encouraged, not only to remember relatives and friends, but also to enjoy the beauty of this peaceful, natural setting.
Founded in 1923 by the City of Victoria and the District of Saanich, the operation of the Burial Park is overseen by the volunteer directors of the Board of Cemetery Trustees of Greater Victoria.
As a not for profit organization, the Board of Cemetery Trustees is dedicated to the provision of affordable cemetery, cremation and mausoleum services.

City of Kamloops - Parks and Recreation - Cemeteries Cemeteries are a history of people - a perpetual record of yesterday, a sanctuary of peace and quiet, a special urban open space.
The Parks Division maintains 5 cemeteries, 3 of which are historical cemeteries - Pioneer, 6th Avenue and Historical Chinese Cemeteries.
Pioneer Cemetery 8th Avenue & Lorne Street With the arrival of the railway and many settlers in the 1880s, the growth of Kamloops meant that a cemetery was needed.
The first such cemetery was located at the corner of 8th Avenue and Lorne Street and remained in use until around 1901.
At the time, the cemetery did not belong to the City, therefore, land was purchased on Pleasant Street in 1898 for a new public cemetery.
Chinese Cemetery A cemetery was created off Lombard Street in Powers Addition for the Chinese community about the same time as the Pioneer Cemetery.
It is being upgraded through a partnership between the City of Kamloops and the Kamloops Chinese Cemetery Heritage Society.
It contains over 1,000 utilized plots, with the last interment in 1974.
In 2000 the city recovered a number of plots which are available to the public for purchase.
Hillside Cemetery By 1951 it became evident the City would require additional space for burials and purchased a 15 ac.
Land holdings have since been increased to approximately 35 ac.
http://www.kamloops.ca/cemeteries/index.shtml Hillside Cemetery remains today as a non-denominational municipal cemetery owned and operated by the City of Kamloops, providing a variety of interment-related services and burial alternatives to the community at large. cemetery, Parks.

All those interested in the creation of mausolea and columbaria at the City Cemetery are invited to complete the questionnaire.
The City of Prince George is pleased to announce that the ongoing work to improve and expand its existing cemetery is well underway.
The planned works this year include completion of the new interment area next to Landsdowne Road.
Work during 2003 saw the site cleared, roads installed and utility poles and underground services moved.

The existing cemetery's irrigation and lighting systems will be improved with the main access road repaved and decommissioned access roads replaced by additional interment areas.
