"Community Working for Community"
Transcona Cemetery is a traditional cemetery located at the intersection of Dugald Road and the east Perimeter highway. The cemetery offers clients the use of upright monuments or flat markers. The cemetery is also home to the original Transcona Prayer Chapel, relocated here from downtown Transcona.
The Transcona Cemetery was opened in 1914 by the municipality of Transcona and is now the final resting place of approximately 5,000 deceased persons. The cemetery is an important part of the community, having a separate Field of Honour where Veterans of WWI and WWII and Service men and women are interred.
Contact Candace, Matt or Milaini, our Customer Service Advisors, at 204-986-4348 for information or to make an appointment to view the choices for an affordable interment.
Perpetual maintenance of the grounds, lots/plots and niches is assured to all owners, through our investing a percentage of the purchase price of all cemetery property into the Perpetual Maintenance Reserve Fund.
Note: Perpetual maintenance does not provide for the upkeep of memorials placed in the cemetery grounds.
Future Planning is available and affordable.
Our vision is to be "the citizen's first choice provider of interment services in Winnipeg". We can achieve this vision through providing "an affordable, high quality, caring community service that ensures access to and choice of services for all".
Transcona Cemetery Burial Searches Available on iCemetery App
The launch of the iCemetery app is the first step in making all City of Winnipeg cemeteries' burial search information more accessible. At present, Transcona Cemetery is the only City of Winnipeg municipal cemetery available on the app.
iCemetery is easy to use. The first name and last name of the deceased are matched with Cemetery records to supply an interment site address. It is also important to check age and date of death to ensure you identify the correct record. The iCemetery database includes all interments up to the end of February 2018 and the app will continue to be updated on a regular basis.
Please note that iCemetery and the alpha listing records for Transcona Cemetery include every interment in the cemetery, but as cemetery records are transferred from paper to digital, some of the previously recorded information may contain inaccuracies or a lack of information. The public can provide feedback about any issues encountered with the app or the information provided.
If you are unable to find the location once in the cemetery grounds, staff is on site from Monday to Friday between 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to provide assistance. Alternatively, cemetery visitors can contact a customer service advisor at 204-986-4348 to make an appointment for a staff person to meet you in the cemetery.
Please Note: The iCemetery app will not work on a computer at present. The City hopes to adapt the app for desktop computer usage at some point this summer. In the meantime, all search data will also remain in the alphabetical listing on the Cemeteries Branch website.
