Mountain View Cemetery burial index

This dataset lists the name and grave location of those buried at the Mountain View Cemetery. The cemetery is owned and operated by the City of Vancouver since 1887. It is made up of 106 acres of land and it is located west of Fraser Street between 31st and 43rd Avenues.


The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (RSBC 1996) allows public institutions to disclose personal information for historical purposes if "the information is about someone who has been dead or buried for 20 or more years."

For people who do not meet these criteria, the first names have been substituted with a unique cemetery identification number. Other name related fields are also masked with "PRIVATE" value to provide privacy protection.

If you are searching for someone within this time frame or if you have inquiries on specific record, please contact the Mountain View Cemetery office by phone: 604-325-2646 or email: mountain.view@vancouver.ca.
