2006 Aerial Photo of Mountain View CemeteryLocated at 1210 Scenic Drive South

The main entrance is straight ahead through the gates west of the Immortal Flame. 

This cemetery originated as a direct request for interment space on the south side of the city as the old Pioneer Cemetery (St. Patrick's) was not meeting the needs of the citizens of the time.



  • 1901 the Anglican Church started a private cemetery originating with Plan One - Block One located in the centre of today's Mountain View, purchased by the City in 1942.
  • 1905, an undertaker named B. C. Moore started a second private cemetery just east of  the original Anglican Church block, subsequently turned over to the City in 1909.
  • 1909, the death of Lou Louenthal prompted the Hebrew Community in Lethbridge to start their own cemetery so they purchased 1.2 acres west of Moore's Cemetery, this cemetery is also now a part of Mountain View Cemetery as well; and is maintained by the City under a special arrangement.
