Our memorial benches are made of timber slats and concrete supports and are built to last for many years.

We plant 60-70mm caliper basket stock to help ensure a healthy tree and guarantee replacement of the tree if it does not flourish within two years of planting. Contact us for a list of the types of trees available for planting.
Memorial Tree Donation Form
Memorial flowerbeds consist of shrubs and perennials, selected jointly by the donor and the Cemeteries Branch.
Memorial Flowerbeds Donation Form
The location for the bench, tree or flowerbed is selected in co-operation with the donor. However, the Cemeteries Branch reserves the right to make the final location decision.
Perpetual Maintenance Reserve Fund Donations
You may donate to the Perpetual Maintenance Reserve Fund to help with the cost of maintenance of the cemetery grounds. The donation can be directed to a specific cemetery to be invested in that cemetery's fund.
