Riverside Cemetery is owned and operated by the City of Sault Ste Marie..


Riverside Cemetery was established in 1890 as the Protestant alternative to the mixed-use Maple Ridge Cemetery. Maple Ridge soon closed up for further burials, prompting the opening of a new Catholic cemetery named St. Mary's Cemetery, in 1901, located adjacent to Riverside. Today, St. Mary's Cemetery is a part of Riverside 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.
