Burial options

Your choice for memorialization provides you and your family with a lasting focal point for healing and strength. Whatever you decide, it will be an ongoing expression of love in the celebration of a beautiful life.

In its selection of six cemetery properties - each with its own unique character - Kitchener Cemeteries offers several burial options:

  • Lots to accommodate traditional casket burials are available for purchase in four of the six properties. These lots accommodate an upright monument or a flat, granite marker.
  • Woodland Cemetery also offers both indoor and outdoor crypts.
  • Williamsburg Cemetery's Promontory Point, adjacent to the pond near the Dedication Reception Centre, provides a choice of in-ground lots in a beautiful natural setting.
  • Williamsburg Cemetery's Sanctuary Woods provides individuals with the opportunity to purchase full-sized lots that include a tree. This lot can be memorialized with a small pillow marker.
  • In-ground interment for both casket and cremation interments. These lots can be memorialized with flat markers (flush to the ground) or with upright monuments.  You can choose single-grave lots, two-grave, three-grave or four-grave lots.
  • Above-ground options for cremation internments available in outdoor or indoor columbaria.

 

The following options are only available at Williamsburg Cemetery:

  • Scattering gardens are available for scattering remains and is located in a natural wooded nook.
  • Also for scattering, an Ossuary is available and located within a golf green in the golf section near the wetlands. The ossuary is where families can decant cremated remains into a common underground chamber.
