City of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

Regina is the capital of the province of Saskatchewan. It is located in the southern part of the province. The City of Regina owns and maintains two cemeteries - Riverside Memorial Park Cemetery and Regina Cemetery. City officials have uploaded a burial database for these cemeteries to the city’s website. The information in the database has been extracted from the official cemetery records held at the Cemetery Administration Office. The Riverside Memorial Park Cemetery database contains more than 34,000 records and the Regina Cemetery database contains nearly 10,000 records. Click on the Locate a Loved One link to access the cemetery database. Click on the Cemetery Database link to open the search page. You will also find links to cemetery maps in PDF format on the Locate a Loved One page.

The Online Cemeteries Database can be searched by last name, first name, year of death, age at death, and year interred. The search can be limited to a specific cemetery or you can search both cemeteries at the same time. The data fields in the search results are last name, first name(s), age at death, date of birth, date of death, date of burial, cemetery, and block-plot lot.

Neepawa, Manitoba, Canada

Neepawa is a town of about 4,000 residents, located in southern Manitoba. It was incorporated in 1883. The town of Neepawa has made the database for Riverside Cemetery available on its website. The earliest burial I found in the database occurred in 1877, and the most recent was in February 2013. According to the website, Riverside Cemetery is the furthest west location where a victim of the Titanic disaster was buried. Click on the search link. You may enter first names, last names, or a burial year in the search box. The data fields in the search results are last name, first/middle name, lot/block/range, and the interment date. If the deceased was an infant, it is noted on the name line. The search results are sorted by date.
