More than 1,400 people were buried in Bergen Memorial Gardens over the past four years.
The event has been held annually since 1857 and is now celebrating its 50th anniversary.
The memorial, which includes the graves of some 100 individuals, will be on display for the first time on the anniversary of its dedication in 2018.
It is believed to have a record-breaking attendance of 1,280 people.
The ceremony was organised by the Norwegian Government and the Bergen Museum.
“Today, I am proud to say that I have succeeded in making this event a truly international affair,” Mayor of Bergen Bjørn Haugen said in a statement.
“It was a very hard task, but the result was an event that will be remembered forever.”
The ceremony included a performance by the famous rock band the Pogues.
The band played at the ceremony and the band is the oldest active member of the band, having joined the group in 1956.
They performed at the memorial before the band left Norway for America in 1980.
In 2018, the Pogue will be performing in New York and New Jersey, and will also be performing on the island of Long Island.
“This event has inspired many people in Bergdorf Goodman to work towards a future where every life can be respected and every person is free to live out his or her dreams,” the city said in the statement.
Bergdorgs first burials The first burial took place on August 15, 1857, and was attended by the local population.
Bergen Cemetery has a total of 1.1 million graves in its grounds.
The first cemetery was established in 1882.
The city of Bergdors is home to a variety of memorials and monuments, including the Bergdens oldest memorial, the Berdens first church, the famous Bergen Beach Park, and a memorial to the city’s first mayor, Jorg Aarhus.
The name Bergdörg translates to “the city of graves” and the first cemetery in the country was named for the island’s former mayor.
“We all want to live our lives in peace, and this is what the Bergs are all about,” Mr Haugen added.
“I am really happy to be able to say to you that I am the Mayor of the Bergeders.”
