Northern Cemeteries and Graves

An Explorer's Guide to Atlin, British Columbia


Atlin Cemetery


Atlin Cemetery, BC

    This cemetery opened in 1947, replacing what is now called the Atlin Pioneer Cemetery. We haven't photographed any of the grave markers yet - hopefully when the snow melts in 2021 we can get that done. Carolyn Moore photographed all the markers in 2011, however, and those 131 are posted at CanadaGenWeb. The initial list of 131 below was provided to us by Carolyn Moore from her 2011 inventory.

    We have also posted a list of 457 people who are recorded as having died in the Atlin area, but without burial information - see Deaths at Atlin, BC.
