There are currently two cemeteries located within the City of Wetaskiwin.
The Wetaskiwin Cemetery
Location The Wetaskiwin Cemetery is located on 51 Avenue at 55A Street (north of the water tower).
Brief Background The Wetaskiwin Cemetery is the older of the two local cemeteries. It was started in 1893 and is currently owned and operated by the City of Wetaskiwin. This cemetery has a mausoleum which still has vaults available for sale.
Location The Wetaskiwin Memorial Cemetery is located on 47 Street at 63 Avenue (south of the hospital).
Brief Background Wetaskiwin's Memorial Cemetery was started in the late '60s, and is funded jointly by the City and County of Wetaskiwin. This cemetery has full body and cremation plots available for sale. The Memorial Cemetery also has a columbarium, which has niches available for purchase.
Why does the City require me to get a permit before I can inter my loved one at one of the Wetaskiwin cemeteries? There are many requirements that the City, and the families of the deceased, must follow as part of the Province of Alberta Cemeteries Act.
