Conduct on an online record search of City Cemeteries: Information about burial records and other genealogy interests can be obtained through this new online searchable database. Be sure to follow the instructions with the search tool and enter at least the surname, or last name, of the deceased. Please note that information in the City’s cemeteries database comes from information found on original records, as well as information gleaned from cemetery markers and monuments. Old records in particular can be difficult to read and may be incomplete or contain spelling inaccuracies.
Volunteer: The City of Vancouver has an active Volunteer Program with a coordinator who can help you find ways to effectively and safely make a difference in our community.
