Finding a Grave Location

To find the location of a person interred within in the Taber Memorial Gardens, please click here.

You are able to search by name, date of internment, and veteran status*.

Our locations are identified by Row-Block-Plot-Grave (for example: Row J, Block 9, Plot 5, Grave 1). The Rows and Blocks are identified in the cemetery by permanent row markers.

*Please note that our records may not indicate if someone was a veteran if we were not notified at the time of burial. If you know of someone interred in the Taber Memorial Gardens that is a veteran and they are not marked as such, please contact us so we may update the records.

The Town of Taber makes no guarantee of accuracy. If you notice an error in the database, please contact us and we will be happy to assist.

We are working on improving the current mapping in our cemetery software. We appreciate your patience as we do so. In the meantime, you can find a map of our cemetery here.
