Woodlawn Cemetery is a landscaped, well-maintained 94-acre site that is owned and operated by the City of Saskatoon. It is centrally located in Saskatoon, and easily accessible by car or public transport.
The City of Saskatoon is growing, and along with this growth comes a diversity of cultures. Sections of the cemetery have, therefore, been designated to accommodate different religious traditions and customs, including:
- Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'i
- Islamic Ismalian
Woodlawn also has designated sections for:
- Cremated Remains
- University of Saskatchewan
- Field of Honour (Military)
- Flat Marker
- Upright Monument
Woodlawn Cemetery offers several choices for both casket interments and cremated remains.
- Casket: plots available for casket burials include single graves, double graves (side by side), and single deep graves (two burials in a single deepened grave).
- Cremation: choices for the burial of cremated remains include in-ground cremation graves, above-ground columbarium niches, scattering on an existing family grave or a scattering garden.
Choosing An Appropriate Gravesite
The choice of a gravesite is a very personal decision. However, consideration for friends and family who will wish to visit may also influence individual choices. When a choice is being made, accessibility and appearance are key factors to consider.
Woodlawn Cemetery is centrally located within the City. It is accessible by public transportation, with a bus stop directly behind the Administration office on Second Avenue North. It is also accessible by private car, and offers ample public parking.
Woodlawn Cemetery's Perpetual Care Fund ensures long-term maintenance is carried out according to high quality standards.
Saskatoon's Woodlawn Cemetery has seen approximately 55,000 burials since it was first opened. While the lives of all these people were important to individuals and to the community, it is impossible to chronicle even the highlights of each person's life. The pages that are linked here are simple alphabetical text files, listing those buried in Woodlawn Cemetery. They contain the person's name, date of death, date of burial, grave number and burial plot location in the cemetery.
The text listings are organized in the following order:
- Last Name
- First Name
- Burial Permit Number
- Burial Block - Lot - Section
- Date of Death
- Date of Burial

Efforts were made to make these pages a reasonable size. They vary between 25k and approximately 110k. Except for corrections, these pages were last updated on January 31, 2015.
The cemetery map (below) is provided to help individuals determine the approximate location of graves in Woodlawn Cemetery. Additional information is provided on a large outdoor map located at the Cemetery by the Administration Office.
How to Locate the Block of the Burial
- Locate the entry of the burial in the alphabetical listings. The entries are listed as follows: Last Name / First Name / Burial Permit Number / Burial Block - Lot - Section / Date of Death / Date of Burial.
- Once you've located the entry, look for the Burial Block. A burial containing the location 24 - 25 - N1/3 would be interpreted as Burial Block 24 - Lot 25 - Section N1/3. The Lot and Section numbers are not available on the map. To find locations for specific lots and sections, please visit the Cemetery Administration Office.
- Locate the Burial Block on the map below. Please note that if the block location contains the text RC, as in this example, 38RC - 60 - W1/2, the block is located in the Old Roman Catholic Section of the cemetery (the original Catholic Cemetery at this location).
- The orange lines on the map are the paved roads within the cemetery.
