Reception room at Thomson In the Park Funeral Home and CemeteryOur focus at Thomson In the Park Funeral Home is to go above and beyond to create truly personalized funeral and memorial services. In short, we celebrate life. This means different things for different people, but for us it always entails discovering what a person loved, such as a treasured poem, favourite colour or lifelong hobby, and then incorporating those elements into a service with exquisite attention to detail.

What might your loved one's memorial look like? For a motorcycle enthusiast we might plan a processional of bikes. For an artist, we can arrange an art show. We surprised a family with a meal served on their mom’s favorite dishware, complete with the tomato juice she poured every Sunday. Whatever a person’s passions, we make it a point to showcase the things that someone cared about.

History

Cemetery grounds at Thomson In The Park CemeteryWhat is now Thomson in the Park Cemetery was founded in 1953 on 34 acres of farmland in Fort Garry.

During the 1950s, Winnipeg's Smith family ran multiple cemeteries in the city, including Elmwood Cemetery. The Smiths eventually sold this cemetery, then called Garry Memorial Park, to the city of Fort Garry. The cemetery became synonymous with quality and grew to become a respected part of the community.

Construction on the funeral home began in 2002. It opened in 2003 to meet the funeral and cremation needs of Winnipeg and surrounding communities.

Joining Thomson

In the early 2000s, Garry Memorial Park and the funeral home joined with the oldest funeral business in the city, Thomson. Thomson In The Park Funeral Home and Cemetery carry on a deep tradition of unparalleled service established under the Thomson name.
