Photos of the Fort Selkirk Cemetery, Yukon

Fort Selkirk Cemetery, Yukon
There are 2 or 3 cemeteries at Fort Selkirk, depending on how you define a cemetery. The Fort Selkirk Cemetery is the cemetery for non-Native people, located in the forest at the upriver end of the community. Within this cemetery is the Yukon Field Force Cemetery, for the 3 members of the Canadian Army's Yukon Field Force who died while serving in Fort Selkirk. The other cemetery is the Fort Selkirk First Nations Cemetery, for Native people - it is located at the opposite (downriver) end of the community.
