Cemetery History

Burnsland cemetery dates back to 1923 and includes many of Calgary’s World War I Veterans. Burials were made in this plot of land, however, going back to at least 1907, or even earlier.

The Calgary Heritage Authority has deemed the cemetery to be a historically significant cultural landscape that played an important part in the settlement and establishment of Calgary as a city.

In 1923, Calgary was well on its way to becoming a major western centre, and the existing Union Cemetery was running short of space, so new burial land was opened at 27 Avenue and Spiller Road S.E. Measuring 13 ha (32-acre) in size, this new cemetery was named Burnsland Cemetery.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
