FAQs

  • Are the cemeteries open 24 hours a day?

    Yes, the gates are always open, however there are no staff on site.

  • Can Ashes be interred in locations apart from the niche wall?

    Yes. We have a dedicated lawn area for ashes, or they can be interred in a grave.

  • Can I pre-purchase a plot anywhere in the cemetery?

    Pre-purchase is only available in the “old” or memorial section. Plots in the lawn section are sold in turn or “at need” and cannot be pre-purchased.

  • Does this include Funeral costs?

    No this is for the plot only. To pre-purchase any other services, please contact your Funeral Director.

  • How do I reserve a cemetery plot or space in the niche wall?

    Contact Council’s Cemetery representative during business hours to discuss your pre-purchase options and available spaces. Once decided, you will be required to complete a form and pay the appropriate fee. When you purchase a burial plot, you are buying the right to be buried (interred) on that land. You are not purchasing outright the title to the land itself. You will be issued with a Right of Interment.

  • How long do I own a Burial Plot for?

    When your purchase a burial plot, you are buying the right to be buried (interred) on that land. You are not purchasing outright the title to the land itself. We provide the Right of Interment for a perpetual term, meaning it does not require renewal.
