Old Banff Cemetery


Established in 1890, Old Banff Cemetery is now the resting place for over two thousand souls. This cemetery also served the nearby community of Bankhead and is home to the Bankhead Miners Memorial, which honours the fifteen miners killed during its operations. At the time, mourners would travel nine kilometres by foot to the cemetery from Bankhead and were often led by the Bankhead Mine Band.

The cemetery is home to many historical figures, along with the 189 victims of the Hillcrest Mine Disaster.

Old Banff Cemetery is the second cemetery in Alberta to be declared a historic municipal resource.
