Cemetery Listings

The Vernon & District Family History Society began the Monument Inscription Project in 1984 by assisting the Friends of History in transcribing the Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Vernon. The project was completed and reproduced in book form in 1988. Since then, the Family History Society has updated the information regularly.

In the past, Society members have catalogued the monument inscriptions for cemeteries in our region. Currently, digital photographs of all markers are being taken. To obtain a copy of one of these photos please contact the Society at verfamhist@shaw.ca.

Research Accuracy

Where possible, burial records and/or plot plans have been obtained from the cemetery governing body and this information has been included here. In some cases, registrations of death have been obtained from the B.C. Archives. Additional information has been gathered from local history books.

It is our sincere desire to present as factual as possible a record of our earliest residents.
