Interment refers to the act of burying remains in a final resting place, and Woodlawn Memorial Park provides a variety of interment options, designed to honour the wishes of you or your loved ones.

  • Single Grave Spaces: Accommodate one casket and additional cremated remains.
  • Multiple Grave Spaces: Families can purchase rights for two, three, four, or more graves side by side.
  • Cremation Burial: Woodlawn provides the option to have cremated remains interred in a traditional plot on the Cremation Lawn, which permits up to two urns.

Full-size grave spaces are approximately 3’-3″ wide and 10′ long, and commonly provide space for the interment of one casket or one full-size burial and two additional cremated remains.

When you buy interment rights at Woodlawn, you’re ensuring that the area you choose remains a beautiful green space, both today and for generations to come. This means that your loved ones will always have a special place to visit, remember, and connect with their heritage.

Wide-Ranging Cremation Options

At Woodlawn Memorial Park, understanding your cremation options is a straightforward process. Many options are suitable for our Cremation Garden — a serene space adorned with a tranquil waterfall and lush flower beds. There is also the option for a cremation burial, as mentioned above.

  • Columbarium Walls: These above-ground structures hold urns in a dedicated space within the walls, allowing for an outdoor memorialization while ensuring the remains are securely and respectfully kept.
  • Columbarium Domes: Similar to columbarium walls, domes provide a secure and honourable resting place within a rounded structure.
  • Tower Niches: Above-ground options, like tower niches, offer a beautiful and accessible way to memorialize loved ones, with the added height providing a unique and distinguished setting.
  • Estates Columbaria: For those who prefer a more private, family-centered option, Estates Columbaria can house up to four urns in a singular, elegant space that ensures loved ones remain together.
  • Upright Monument Graves: These allow for the interment of up to three urns in a traditional gravesite setting, providing a grounded, earth-connected memorial space.
  • Mausoleum: Offering an indoor option, the mausoleum houses medallion and glass-front niches, providing a sheltered, serene, and respectful place for memorialization.
  • Scattering Gardens: For those who lean towards a natural return, Woodlawn offers two scattering gardens: the Royal Belvedere or the Garden of Life/Bed of Hope, where remains can be gently returned to nature in a beautiful, peaceful setting.
