NWMP Cemetery at Fort Walsh

The North West Mounted Police Cemetery
at Fort Walsh is about forty-five minutes
southwest of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan.

The fort was in use from 1875 to 1883
during which time several police officers
lost their lives and were buried in this
cemetery.  In later years permission for
civilians to be buried here was granted. 

Some photos and information of the
equally appealing Fort Walsh Civilian
Cemetery can be seen here:
