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
