There are three cemeteries owned and managed by the City of Vancouver. These are:
Park Hill Cemetery
Located at 5915 E. Mill Plain Blvd., some early 1800s graves were moved to this cemetery. There are more than 25,000 burials at Park Hill Cemetery, which also remains available to new interments. To contact the Park Hill Cemetery, please call 360-693-1562.
Old City Cemetery
Located at East Mill Plain and Grand Boulevard, the Old City Cemetery is surrounded by a tall iron and concrete fence. It is one of Vancouver’s oldest established cemeteries.
Located at 16509 Evergreen Highway, Fisher Cemetery dates back to 1852, the oldest pioneer burial ground in Clark County, Washington. William Simmons donated an acre of his land for the site of Fisher Cemetery in honor of his wife, Ann J. Fisher Simmons.
Visitors are welcome and are encouraged to be respectful of others who have come to pay their respects.
Conduct on an online record search of City Cemeteries
Information about burial records and other genealogy interests can be obtained through an 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.
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. To learn about volunteer opportunities with the City of Vancouver, visit the Volunteer Programs webpage.
