The Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria is dedicated to researching, preserving and encouraging the appreciation of Victoria's heritage cemeteries.

Our members are involved in many volunteer activities, mainly at Ross Bay Cemetery. Cataloguing, cleaning and restoring monuments, computerizing burial records, combating vandalism, conducting historical research and giving walking history tours.

Old cemeteries are fascinating places to visit. In Victoria you're welcome to explore some of the most interesting ones in British Columbia. Come on your own, or on a guided walking history tour.

You'll find quiet, parklike settings, monuments and sculpture, beautiful views towards the sea and mountains, and a sense of history unsurpassed anywhere else in the capital city.

Learn what it was like to live here long ago.

  • Walking History Tours every Sunday afternoon (Except January)
  • Ghost Bus-tours and Ghost Walks in October

  • Field Trips, Workshops and Lectures

Walk through history in Victoria's old cemeteries. Learn about the famous, the infamous, the cruel, the gentle, the rich and the poor. The characters of Victoria's past come alive when their stories are retold by the guides of The Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria.
