Mountain View Cemetery

Vancouver's only cemetery is located west of Fraser St, between 31st Ave and 43rd Ave. Owned and operated by the City of Vancouver since 1886, Mountain View is made up of 106 acres of land with approximately 92,000 grave sites and 145,000 interred remains.

A rare opportunity to buy burial space

Now for the first time in a quarter century, you can buy a burial plot among Mountain View Cemetery's beautiful vistas.

The available plots were purchased prior to 1940, but have never been used or claimed by the buyers or their families.

The cemetery's central location and open space make it a unique place to honour the memories of lost family and friends, where visitors can engage with nature and history.
