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 approximately 50 interments each year. A limited number of interment options are available including columbaria niches and the scattering garden.
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. You can explore the history of Regina with a self-guided walking tour. Visitors can purchase a copy of the Regina Cemetery Walk Tour Guide from the kiosk located at the 4th Avenue entrance. Veterans are honoured in the Field of Honour that surrounds the Cross of Sacrifice. See the Field of Honour page for more detailed information. An Information map is located at the 4th Avenue gate to assist visitors in locating plots.
