The Fraser Cemetery occupies a spectacular site overlooking the Fraser River making it an ideal setting for quiet contemplation and reflection.  The cemetery underwent a recent enhancement which saw the addition of a columbaria niche wall, ossuary and a unique water feature.  Future enhancements are in the planning.

The Fraser Cemetery was established circa 1870.  It is the final resting place for a number of the City’s pioneer families as well as notable personalities such as John “Gassy Jack” Deighton, Captain William Irving and Raymond Burr, just to name a few.

Services which are available at the cemetery:

  • Cremation burial
  • Wall niche - cremated remains can be placed in a niche in the wall with a unique water-cut aluminum plaque memorializing the individual interred.
  • Ossuary – an in-ground communal vault in which cremated remains are interred (and thus irretrievable) and the individuals name is etched into the granite wall for memorialization.
  • Memorial benches

Our experienced, friendly and caring cemetery staff are on site to maintain the grounds and provide a high level of customer service at the cemetery.  They are available Monday through Friday, 7:30am – 4:00pm. (excluding statutory holidays).  For planning assistance, plot location and other related information, please call the cemetery office at 604-522-1323.  Should you be asked to leave a message, we would ask for your patience as staff may be with a family or out on the grounds and will return your call as soon as they are able.
