Due to Covid-19 and social distancing requirements we have cancelled our Mother’s Day celebration.  The cemetery will be open.  Please respect others in the cemetery.  Be safe.  The Friends of Elmwood Cemetery.


Historic Elmwood Cemetery is located at the northern end of the Disraeli Freeway. The 38 acre site is nestled along the Red River and is easily accessible by vehicle through the gate off Hespeler Avenue. Magnificent old elm trees dot the landscape of this beautifully restored cemetery. It is run as a non-profit organization by The Friends of Elmwood Cemetery. As one of Winnipeg’s oldest and largest cemeteries it is rich in history and many prominent Canadians are interred there.
