  • Locating a cemetery in Alberta may be possible through the Department of Municipal Affairs. All cemeteries should be registered with this department, however, older sites, perhaps abandoned before legislation was put into place, may not appear on their lists. Active and inactive cemeteries are listed alphabetically by municipal district, however this does not necessarily mean by name of town or city.
