Green Burials and Private Columbaria
Green burials are an environmentally sensitive practise where the body is returned to the earth to decompose naturally and contribute to new life. The body is prepared for burial without embalming and is buried in a biodegradable container or shroud.
A communal memorial built from stone will be placed within the Green Burial section with room for a simple inscription to record the names of the persons buried in the area.
For more information, contact the Cemetery Administration:
Making the necessary preparations for future interment provides peace of mind and helps ensure the deceased's wishes are carried out. Pre-planning also presents opportunities to purchase a burial area near loved ones, which may not always be possible at a later date.
In addition, planning ahead is a sound option against the rising cost of cemetery plots, niches and crypts. Interest-free payment plans are available for the purchase of crypts, plots and niches. For additional information, contact Cemetery Administration:
Canadian veterans have a section of the Cemetery that is marked by the Veterans' Memorial. Created by the Ladies Auxiliary to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 43, the monument is made with local stone mined from the McGregor Mountains. The Gardening Angels assisted the Ladies Auxiliary with fundraising and Jay Lazzarin provided the landscape design. Black Mountain Stone supplied the stone and the engraving was completed by E&K Stoneware.
Community Flag Placement
Every year RCMP members, Rocky Mountain Rangers, Scouts, Cubs, and family members visit the Cemetery to place Canadian flags on the graves of veterans and others who served the nation. More than 1,500 flags have been placed to date.
Chinese Burial Section
When the Prince George Municipal Cemetery opened in 1915, one of the oldest areas of the park was the Chinese Section where many new immigrants were buried. The Monument commemorates the contributions Chinese Canadians made to the community and region.
The Monument was a joint venture between the City of Prince George and the Chinese community. It was supported by the Prince George Chinese Heritage Preservation Committee, the Chinese Freemasons, the Chinese Benevolent Association, Chee Duck Tong, the Chinese Student and Professional Association, the Prince George Canada-China Friendship Association, and many individuals, businesses and other organizations in the city.
Muslim Burial Section
In 2016, the British Columbia Muslim Association purchased fifty-four burial plots from the City of Prince George. Memorial Park Cemetery agreed to set aside section 64 for the exclusive use of the Muslim Community.
