Being buried in a Township Cemetery

Interment rights are the rights to place human remains or cremated remains in a grave, crypt or niche. It is important to remember that cemeteries do not sell the land that is a lot or plot. After purchase you will receive a legal document called an “Interment Rights Certificate”. Interment Rights are available in all active cemeteries. More information is available in our Cemetery by-law as well as our Princeton Columbarium and niche brochure. For information on rates please read our Cemetery Fees and Charges
