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.

St. Anne’s Cemetery Board is pleased to announce that the first phase of the columbarium project is now complete. On Sunday October 9th at 9:30 am Reverend Rita consecrated this burial space with prayers and witnessed by a small group of parishioners.

Applications are now being received for interment rights for niches housed in the two columbaria. Each niche is designed to accommodate the interment of a maximum of two cremation urns not larger than 11 inches high and 7 inches in diameter. Each niche is 12 inches by 12 inches by 15 inches deep.

The fee structure for the niches, as approved by the board, is as follows:
Top row of Niches - $ 1,200.00 per niche
Second row from top - $ 1,100.00 per niche
Third row from top - $ 1,000.00 per niche
Bottom row - $ 900.00 per niche

If you would like any further information or would like to apply for interment rights to a niche please contact Peter H. or the church office at 519-471-0800.

It is the purpose and goal of the cemetery board and the church to provide a reverent, peaceful and relaxing environment for parishioners and visitors to enjoy.
