Yes, many different size lots are available and are located in various areas throughout the Cemetery. There is also an indoor columbarium and an outdoor columbarium for cremated remains. A Lot may contain a single grave or as many graves as required.
Prices vary depending on how many graves are meant to be in the Lot, as well as by the size and type of grave required. For complete information on standard pricing, please look under Products and Services.
Yes, we offer a three-year payment plan with no interest. An agreed upon schedule of monthly or quarterly (every 3 months) payments will be established (and must be maintained to retain the attractive interest free terms).
Perpetual Care is a service providing care of gravesites and monuments into perpetuity. Perpetual Care of the lot or ground, although optional in the past, is now mandatory and the fee is included in Lot prices quoted.
Perpetual Care for monuments, an optional service, is also available. The fee is calculated individually based on the type, size and style of each monument.
Trees may not be planted in any of the grave areas, but plants are permitted with the following conditions:
Plantings must be placed in a raised flowerbed making it obvious there are plantings there. The plants or shrubs must not grow taller than the monument, nor extend beyond the perimeter of the grave(s), nor into the burial area of the graves where the mower travels. Fernhill are not responsible for any plantings placed by clients.
Planters or pots may be placed in the designated area for plants and it is the responsibility of the family to remove them in the fall. Fernhill maintenance will remove unsightly or broken planters and pots.
Yes. As a not-for-profit cemetery, and one of the oldest in the country, we readily welcome any and all donations as one of the most meaningful methods of supporting this national, provincial and local treasure. In addition to non-specified donations, many people donate in memory of a loved one with the timing of the donation relating to a special occasion. A second means of donating is through our Memorial Tree program. For more information, please Contact Us.
