Town of Canmore

Cemetery Services

The Town of Canmore is building a new fire hall adjacent to the cemetery starting in April 2021. Please be advised that there will be construction noise at the cemetery Monday – Saturday. If you are looking to plan your visit or interment during a quieter time please consider visiting on a Sunday. Thank you for your understanding during this work.

The Canmore Cemetery is located on Palliser Trail. 

The Cemetery has plots available for in ground interments and a Columbarium. A Columbarium is an above ground granite structure which allows for the placement of cremated remains in a niche. Each niche is capable of holding two urns.

There are two Field of Honour sections. We are now selling plots in our newest section, West Section H

Our historic section is untouched and dates back to the early 1800s. It is located behind the Columbarium. It is open to the public.
