The City of Abbotsford owns and operates four cemeteries: Aberdeen, Hazelwood, Mt. Lehman and Musselwhite.

Each cemetery is rich with the personal, family, and settlement stories of the pioneers and early settlers. Today the cemeteries are landscaped and maintained in park-like settings with views to the nearby mountains and the Fraser Valley. These historic places are cultural resources, community assets and provide an ongoing legacy for generations of the Fraser Valley residents. For further information, please email the Cemetery Office.

Marker Maintenance Volunteer Program

Our cemeteries are beautifully kept park spaces that honor former residents and loved ones. The City of Abbotsford Parks team diligently works to maintain these areas but would also welcome volunteer support to assist in the proper cleaning of marker headstones. All equipment and direction is provided for volunteers who are trained to assist in cleaning headstones and photographing cleaned markers.  If you would like to honor these spaces and the residents of our past in this way, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@abbotsford.ca or 604-557-7050.

We are grateful for the contributions of our Marker Maintenance volunteers and their assistance in building our photo resource.
