Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are the cemeteries open 24 hours a day?

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

  • 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.
