From City of Calgary website:

Cemetery Tours
If headstones could talk, oh, the stories they could tell!

Many of Calgary's colourful characters lie buried in Calgary's oldest existing civic burial grounds. And in the summer, The City of Calgary Parks tells these fascinating stories through free guided walking tours of Calgary's historic Union Cemetery, Burnsland Cemetery and St. Mary's Pioneer Cemetery.

Union Cemetery Tours
When: Sundays, June 6 - October 3, 2010, 2 p.m.
Location: 28 Ave. & Spiller Rd. S.E.

Burnsland Cemetery Tours
When: Last Saturday of each month, June - September, 2 p.m.
Location: 27 Ave. & Spiller Rd. S.E.

St. Mary's Pioneer Cemetery Tours
When: Third Saturday of each month, June - September, 2 p.m.
Location: Erlton St. & 32 Ave. S.W.

Knowledgeable and entertaining volunteer tour guides lead walks through local history, recounting the fascinating stories behind the colourful characters of Calgary's past. Travel back in time to discover the stories behind the names etched in stone, of lives lived and lost, from the famous to those unsung. Each volunteer has developed their own tour, so no two tours are alike!
