Cemetery

What We Offer

Founded circa 1832 and incorporated as an Anglican Cemetery in 1853, St. Anne’s Cemetery has a long history of serving the Byron community.

St. Anne’s Anglican Cemetery is an active cemetery registered with the Cemeteries Branch of the Department of Business and Consumer Affairs, Toronto.
Sales of full size and cremation only graves are limited to the active members of St. Anne’s Vestry or, on approval, their immediate family. There are 700 graves in total in the cemetery with approximately 70 available sites left.

Each year the cemetery board and the church hold a Cemetery Memorial Service on the first Sunday in May. At this service family, friends and parishioners have the opportunity to remember the members of St. Anne’s and the community who have been interred at St. Anne’s Cemetery over the past year, and also to remember other family members or friends who have passed.

An Update from the Cemetery Board
The Cemetery Board met on January 24th and the following new fee structure was approved:
Full Size in ground grave (3 feet by 8 feet): $ 1200.00
Cremation in ground grave ( 2.5 feet by 3 feet): $ 750.00
Scattering Garden Fee: $ 400.00 (remains the same)
Columbarium Niche (unchanged): Top Row: $ 1200.00, Second Row: $ 1100.00, Third Row: $ 1000.00, Bottom Row: $ 900.00

While these fees continue to provide excellent value for the members of St. Anne’s looking to purchase interment rights, the new rates bring these more in line with the current market value.

Our Annual Cemetery Memorial Service will be held on Sunday May 6, 2018 at 2:00 pm we hope you will join us as we remember loved ones past.
