The Battleford Cemetery was established in April 1889 as the first community cemetery for the town of Battleford. Various churches were each given separate areas in the new cemetery for burials of their parishioners, including the local Presbyterian, Methodist and Anglican churches and the Saint Vital Roman Catholic parish. Shortly after its opening, a number of individuals previously interred in other locations were moved to the new Battleford Cemetery, explaining why some grave markers show death dates older that 1889.
