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.
Sadly, due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, the St. Anne’s Cemetery Board must, for the second year in a row, announce the postponement of the Annual Cemetery Memorial Service. We are praying for our community and our country as this pandemic has taken so many lives from us and we continue to strive to offer everything we can to families who have suffered loss during this period. We are praying for you and your family as you grieve, even without being able to have closure and a proper funeral/ memorial service for your loved ones. Please know that we are committed to honouring all those parishioners and family and friends that have passed during this difficult time.
If you would like to support St. Anne’s Cemetery Board and its efforts to maintain the cemetery grounds during this unprecedented time, please make an online donation or send your contribution to St. Anne’s Cemetery Board, 1344 Commissioners Rd. W., London, Ont. N6K 1E1. Be sure to tell us the name of the person for whom the memorial donation is being made. Memorials are noted in our weekly newsletter and a tax receipt is issued for all donations received.
These are difficult times, and in such times there is solace, comfort and peace in familiarity. If you are in need any of these things, please visit our website at stannesbyron.ca and join us for our online services found under the worship menu.
Yours in Christ,
St Anne’s Byron Cemetery Board
