Memorial Park Cemetery provides a number of options for interment that include burial, cremation, placement of cremated remains in a columbarium or urn, and interment in the mausoleum. See information on options below and refer to our
Questions and Answers page for additional information.
It's wise to prepare for the inevitable and plan for future interment at the Memorial Park Cemetery. This provides peace of mind and helps to ensure that your wishes are carried out. In addition, pre-planning may provide the opportunity to purchase an area near a loved one; this option may not be available later.
There are financial benefits as well. Pre-planning 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 details, either email Cemetery administration or phone at 250-561-7500.

Canadian veterans have a section of the Cemetery which 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 their nation. The event now results in the placement of more than 1500 flags.
Military Church Parade
In 2011, Prince George hosted its first Military Church Parade since the Second World War. This is now an annual event and involves more than 100 members of the Royal Canadian Legion, Sea Cadets, Air Cadets, Rocky Mountain Rangers, Navy League Cadets and the RCMP.
Historically, military corps marched to church on Sundays for a special service to commemorate veterans serving and veterans lost in war. Today, this is a non-denominational event performed by Padre Susan Scott. It involves a blessing of each corps, and a prayer for veterans interred in the Cemetery. The Field of Honour flags (commemorating soldiers Canada lost in Afghanistan) lines the route.
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 erection of 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 Prince George.
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 Islamic Community.
