Second World War | Sources

This cemetery is situated east of McPhillips Street in Old Kildonan, now part of Winnipeg. Within the parking lot is a war memorial erected by the Hebrew Sick Benefit Society, on the eastern and western faces of which are engraved names of those who died in the line of service during the Second World War. The stone monument was unveiled by Lieutenant-Governor R. F. McWilliams on 29 September 1946 before a crowd of over 500 attendees.
