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.
In 2019, Cemetery Tours, Cleanup mornings, and Open Houses were held on Saturday, May 25th and Saturday, June 22nd from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. In 2020, Cemetery Open Houses/Community Cleanup mornings will be held on Saturday, May 30th and Saturday, June 20th from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. Volunteers from the community are always invited and welcomed at these cleanups.
