The Whitefish City Cemetery is located at the corner of Highway 93 West and Ramsey Avenue. Community members raised funds to purchase the property and opened the cemetery in 1918. Currently there are 3,079 lots and 184 crematory sites. The cemetery is currently sold out which initiated the creation of the Cemetery Ad Hoc Committee. The Committee has been working diligently to find property for a secondary location or options to increase the current location.
How do I purchase a lot?
Currently the City Cemetery is sold out. Until a new location is found, the City Clerk's Office has a waiting list. Some lots are sold back to the City and some lots are sold by the owner. If you purchase a lot from the owner please contact the City Clerk's Office to update the records.
The City now has cremain remains vaults available in a standing monument called a Columbarium. The current prices for Columbarium vaults are contained in the Resolution creating the fees for the Columbarium.
A memory wall is available for those loved one's that are not interred in the cemetery. The Resolution was passed in December 2015 creating the fees for reserving a space on the wall. A prepayment is paid with the City Clerk's office to have Glacier Memorial Gardens engrave the nameplate.
