Spanish Flu Memorial
The Spanish Flu arrived in Saskatchewan in October of 1918. Swiftly it spread into the cities, infecting and hospitalizing thousands. From the arrival of the flu in 1918 to the end of 1920, 5,018 Saskatchewan citizens died. 330 of them were from Regina.
During the panic, hundreds of graves were dug for the bodies and many of the families did not have the means to afford headstones. City and funeral home records are incomplete on where these victims are buried, but we do know that many do not have headstones. This memorial is to finally give these people a marker and to help preserve their history.
