Faced with the challenge of end-of-life planning, many families encounter the overwhelming burden of decision-making amidst loss. The increasing preference for cremation, with projections indicating that 77.8% of deaths in Ontario will opt for this method by 2026, families must determine a final resting place for cremated remains. Keeping cremated remains in a dedicated, serene space like Woodlawn Memorial Park in Guelph offers a tangible location for reflection and remembrance. By offering compassionate guidance for pre-arranging cremation and interment options, we aim to ease the emotional and logistical burdens, ensuring that every individual’s legacy is honored in a respectful and memorable way.

The Benefits of Interring Cremated Remains

With an increase in people choosing cremation for end-of-life arrangements, the decision of where to place those cremated remains is equally significant. Recognizing the desire to find a meaningful and respectful place, at Woodlawn Memorial Park we emphasize the profound benefits of selecting a cemetery as the final resting place.

A Forever Resting Place and Memorial

Choosing a cemetery for your loved one ensures a permanent and sacred space for remembrance. This forever resting place becomes a focal point for generations to gather, remember, and celebrate the life of the deceased.

Cemeteries allow for the creation of personalized memorials that honour the unique life of your loved one, serving as a testament to their legacy, enabling stories, achievements, and memories to be kept alive. Interment in a cemetery also means your loved one’s final resting place becomes part of a documented record for genealogists to trace lineage and family history.

A Serene Gathering Space

Woodlawn Memorial Park offers a beautiful, park-like setting that welcomes family and friends to reflect, mourn, and celebrate the lives of their loved ones. This serene environment provides a comforting space for visitors any time they wish to connect with their loved ones and find peace in nature’s embrace. We offer a variety of cremation spaces in the park.

Supporting a Charitable Cause

By choosing a cemetery like Woodlawn Memorial Park, which operates as a charitable organization, families contribute to a cycle of care and preservation. Proceeds from all property sales, products and services are reinvested into the cemetery, ensuring the maintenance and beauty of the grounds, and making it a lasting sanctuary for all who visit.
