Riverview Hospital Cemetry
A small cemetery is located in the northern section of the Riverview Lands. It will be preserved as an important part of the Riverview legacy and history. The cemetery was originally known as the Essondale Cemetery and was renamed the Riverview Hospital Cemetery in 1965.
The burial grounds were established for patients who had no family, or whose family members requested they be laid to rest at the site. Prior to 1958, deceased patients whose families did not look after funeral arrangements were buried in unmarked graves in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster, until early 1920.
