The Next of Kin Avenue

The Next of Kin Avenue

History: After the First World War the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire (I.O.D.E.) across Canada created Memorial Avenues in cemeteries as living, tree-lined memorials to honour the fallen of their communities. The Next of Kin Avenue in Saskatoon’s Woodlawn Cemetery is the only intact example. It is now a National Historic site.
