Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brookside Cemetery (3001 Notre Dame Avenue, Winnipeg)

This cemetery is operated by the City of Winnipeg, which provides listings of burials there. A plaque, dedicated on 15 June 2003, explains the creation of the municipal cemetery in 1878. A broad cross-section of Manitobans are buried in this cemetery, including a section dedicated to military personnel and a section for people who donated their bodies to medical research and teaching at the University of Manitoba.

Among the noteworthy people buried in this cemetery is Frank E. Cornish.
