Kitchener: Cemeteries


Tree of Remembrance

Tree of remembrance

Join Kitchener Cemeteries during the month of December to celebrate, remember and give back.

Each year, families are invited to the Dedication Centre at Williamsburg Cemetery to see the Tree of Remembrance. This breath-taking 20-foot fir tree is decorated by cemetery staff.

In an effort to help those in need, Williamsburg Cemetery features a Christmas tree that is ready to be dressed with donations of new hats, mitts, scarves, socks and boots. We invite you to drop by Williamsburg and contribute toward this worthy cause. All items will be donated to local charities, such as St. John's Kitchen, which provides support and outreach services in downtown Kitchener, as well as the Salvation Army and YWCA Mary's Place.

Both trees are located in the Dedication Centre at Williamsburg Cemetery at 1541 Fischer Hallman Road. Guests are welcome to drop-off donations, hang an ornament or quietly reflect throughout the month of December, Monday through Friday 9 - 4 p.m.

On Saturday Dec. 21, 2019 please join us from 2 - 4 p.m., for a casual Christmas gathering. We invite you to place a personalized ornament, provided by us, on our Tree of Remembrance in memory of a loved one and enjoy festive treats.
