The Lost Cemetery of Stanley Park in Vancouver

Monument on top of the gravestone for Malcolm Alexander MacLean, the first Mayor of Vancouver, at Mountain View Cemetery

An article by Eve Lazarus probably will interest anyone with relatives buried in Mountain View Cemetery, Stanley Park, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is a brief history of why the cemetery was formed and the burial, exhumation, and reburial practices of that cemetery.

The article also states, “Mountain View Cemetery may have been Vancouver’s first official cemetery when it opened in 1886.”
