Serene, compelling and historical – Chilliwack Cemeteries, operating since 1873, is believed to be the fourth oldest private registered perpetual care cemetery in BC. Our visitors include families visiting loved ones, local artists who come to paint the lush landscape, and historians who seek a connection to the past. Stroll our grounds and you will see how hard our staff at Chilliwack Cemeteries works to ensure that beauty surrounds you, and we work even harder to provide each family we meet with compassionate assistance and understanding during their time of need.
Just take a peaceful stroll around and you’ll find a trove of undiscovered genealogical secrets including the names of the early pioneers of the area, intact headstones from the old Anglican Church of England, and the family memorial of Robert Stevenson, one of Chilliwack’s gold rush pioneers.
