Upright monument lots:

Black granite upright lot monument with vase

Choosing a lot that allows an upright monument provides families with the opportunity to place a monument that can be inscribed with dates and personalized with photo etchings or favourite sayings. Visitors and future generations are left with a genealogical path to learn more about the individual.

Choosing this option also allows the family to tend to a flowerbed if they choose, which can be installed by cemetery staff, by request, after the monument has been placed. Please see our flowerbed options

Traditional (casket) lots are available as: single grave, two-grave, three-grave or four-grave.

These lots are available at: Woodland Cemetery, Williamsburg Cemetery and Bridgeport Cemetery

Indoor/Outdoor Crypts:

Large historic stone building with stairs leading to entrance

Woodland Cemetery features both indoor and outdoor crypts available within the cemetery and mausoleums.
