When choosing an interment option for you or your loved one, consider the following:

  • The purchase of a resting place in a cemetery is the purchase of interment rights (the right to bury).
  • Continuous care costs are included in the purchase of a niche, lot or crypt. A portion of this cost will be placed into a trust fund and the interest collected is used by the cemetery to provide ongoing general care of the grounds.
  • The lot, crypt or niche remains the property of the cemetery.  
  • Requested concrete cremation vaults require approval from the cemetery manager.
  • For safety reasons, Kitchener Cemeteries does not offer extra deep burials (casket-over-casket).
  • Up to two cremation interments (urns) are permitted to be buried on top of an existing casket burial.  Permission by the Interment Rights holder(s) is required.
