Established in 1883 on 40 acres, Regina Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Regina, and one of Saskatchewan’s oldest urban cemeteries. There are two entrances, the main gate located on 4th Avenue and a secondary gate located on Broad Street.
There are many historical figures buried at Regina Cemetery with over 30,000 plots including lives lost in the 1912 Regina Tornado, 1918 Spanish influenza, the north-west rebellion, and the 1935 Regina Riot. There are approximately 50 interments each year. A limited number of interment options are available including columbaria niches and the scattering garden.
Approximately 600 interments occur here each year. The grounds are irrigated, with an intensive grounds maintenance program throughout the summer months.
