Historic Sites of Manitoba: University of Manitoba Medical Monument (Winnipeg)

Since 1952, the University of Manitoba has conducted an annual burial and committal service known as the “Service After Death” as a tribute to those people who have donated their bodies to medical science. Located in Brookside Cemetery in the northwest corner of Winnipeg, this monument and plaque, designed by Wayne Larsen, were dedicated 27 June 2003.
