Grey Mountain Cemetery Map Overview

   Grey Mountain Cemetery

Pioneer Cemetery is located on Sixth Avenue and Wood Street, and was in operation from 1900 to 1965. According to Mrs. Otto Partridge’s diary, the first burial was that of James Brown on October 11, 1900. By 1904 there were 22 burials in the cemetery. The Crown received title to the land in 1901 and the officials of the Territorial Government were in charge of administration. Although the City of Whitehorse was established as a municipality in 1950, the City did not accept responsibility for managing the cemetery until 1965. Unfortunately, no consecutive records of burials were kept, apart from individual churches and the Masonic Lodge. About twenty years ago most of the wooden markers were removed in a misguided cleanup of the area. As a result, there is no complete record of individual gravesites, apart from those with stone monuments. There seemed to be a need for a compilation of as many as possible of the names of those at rest in the cemetery and a book titled “Lost Graves” was compiled.
