Edson & Glenwood Cemetery


The Town of Edson owns two Cemeteries: the Edson Cemetery, and the Glenwood Cemetery.

The Edson Cemetery is located at SW 5-28-53-17 W5M and is retained as a public cemetery although the cemetery is not presently being used for interments.

The Glenwood Cemetery is located on 63rd Street between Highway 16 West (4th Avenue) and Highway 16 East (2nd Avenue). The Cemetery has four columbariums and a Field of Honour is present in the North West section of the Cemetery. In 2004, Section H opened creating over 250 new Burial Plots.

The Engineering Department is responsible for the overall administration of graves and the Cemetery including the following:

*Please Note: The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act does not allow making public burial information that is less than 25 years old.

*Please Note:  During winter months (Mid October to April 30) we require 3 full days notice of intention to inter in order to prepare a plot for casket interment and 2 full days to prepare for cremains interment.

Cemetery Maintenance

The general maintenance of the cemeteries is done by the Parks department. In order to allow for proper mowing, maintenance and keeping the cemetery attractive, clean and consistent with other cemeteries, we ask all residents and visitors to follow the rules when it comes to items being placed on or around the grave sites.  More detailed rules can be found in the cemetery bylaw (linked above), but the following are some general guidelines;

Cleanups are done multiple times a year and items that do not follow the guidelines are set aside for a time for families to pick up if they chose.
