Cemetery plots may be reserved prior to a burial. Plots can be reserved as far in advance as desired.
Pre-arrangement of burial services ensures that your personal wishes are known and followed by your survivors.
Reserving a Plot
Visit the cemetery with a set of plot plans to choose the plot you wish to reserve. Current Plot Plans are available from the Cemetery Administrator or in person at the front desk at Municipal Hall.
The plot plans indicate which plots are available and where they are located. Each plot may hold the remains of one person.
When you have chosen the plot that you wish to reserve, arrange an appointment with the Cemetery Administrator to pay the applicable fees and obtain a cemetery license.
Interments for full burial may be scheduled Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Memorial Markers shall not be placed on grave spaces in the cemetery until the fees have been paid in full. Only memorial markers specified within the cemetery bylaw are to be installed in the cemetery.
All memorial markers must be installed by the Cemetery Caretaker and take into consideration the following:
- The marker's top surface must be flush with the surface of the surrounding ground and must be made of stone or bronze.
- The marker must measure 8" x 11".
- Where two related person are buried side by side in adjacent grave spaces, one marker which provides for the memorialization of both people may be used instead of two separate markers providing the single marker is set to embrace evenly the two grave spaces concerned. The single marker used in this case must measure 12" high x 20" wide x 3" thick.
The municipality reserves the right to reject any memorial marker which is not in keeping with the dignity of the cemetery. No grave spaces in the cemetery shall be defined by a fence, hedge or railing unless otherwise approved by the municipality.
