Valleyview Cemetery, at 4205 - 52 Street in Camrose, provides a special place to remember and celebrate the life of a loved one. Cemetery staff work hard to provide highly sensitive care and understanding of your needs.

Interments and Plot Maintenance

Care and maintenance for each site is included in fees of a cemetery plot. This includes seeding and re-seeding of plots and plot surfaces, seasonal cutting of grass and weeds, snow removal and other maintenance to ensure a tidy and well-kept appearance.
