The Village of Burns Lake is responsible for the cemetery in perpetuity on behalf of the community. We take pride in sustaining the beauty and dignity of our cemetery, and we recognize the important contributions of individuals and families in the ongoing maintenance of the cemetery grounds.
The Cemetery is maintained on an ongoing basis, mainly in the summer, utilizing summer students. There are restrictions on types of stones that may be placed in the cemetery and we are continually updating mapping to ease in finding burial plots. Public works handles excavation of plots and reinstatement of covering, as well as lawn maintenance. The Village also maintains a columbarium for ashes.
For information on the cemetery and columbarium services and regulations, please review the Bylaw or call the Village Office.
