Cemetery History

Brookside Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in Winnipeg with the first interment having taken place in 1878. This cemetery is a reflection of the history of the people of Winnipeg. It is the final resting place of politicians, statesmen, athletes, decorated war heroes and people from all walks of life. It is a perpetual record of yesteryear and a sanctuary of peace and quiet.

The cemetery is home to, "Brookside Field of Honour", one of the largest and oldest Military interment sites in Canada. Considered Canada's most significantly designed Military Field of Honour, Brookside has more than 10,000 Veterans, Service Men, Service Women, and War Heroes interred alongside each other, with all interments marked by the Military Grey Barrie granite upright monument, mounted in a beam.

The Field of Honour opened in 1915 when The Daughters of the Empire, a charitable organization now known as Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire (IODE), requested that the City set aside a section of the cemetery for the interment of Veterans returning from World War I.

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.
