St. Luke's Historic Cemetery

St. Luke's Historic Cemetery

St. Luke’s Cemetery is a community resource. It is one of Victoria’s earliest church burial grounds and the final resting place of many Cedar Hill, Lake Hill and Gordon Head pioneers as well as others who settled in the area. The first recorded interment was in 1886, although there were likely unrecorded burials prior to that. Many people in the Greater Victoria area have parents, grandparents and great-grandparents buried in St. Luke’s Churchyard.

Monthly cleanups this year will take place on the third Saturday of the month from April to August. Details on the cleanup mornings are included below and on the events page. Volunteers from the community are invited and welcomed. Volunteers stop partway through the morning for refreshments and a time to chat.

For information about St. Luke's Cemetery and the people buried there, please contact the Church Office by e-mail or phone 250-477-6741. The office is open between 9 am and 12 noon, Monday to Friday. 

Below are a map and aerial view of the cemetery.
