Cemetery

The corporation of the Town of Arnprior owns and maintains two municipal cemeteries (the Albert Street Cemetery and the Malloch Road Cemetery), which are regulated by Cemetery Rulers and Regulations By-Law No. 6369-14.

Our cemeteries are a cherished public space, created out of devotion, pride, and remembrance. With the continued assistance of family members, visitors and historians, we can maintain an unobstructed, clean, litter-free site. Any complaints or concerns can be directed to the Clerk’s Office by telephone at (613) 623-4231 ext. 1819 or by e-mail at emelanson@arnprior.ca.

To help consumers know their rights and responsibilities before entering into contracts, the Bereavement Authority of Ontario provides a free guide “A Guide to Death Care in Ontario”.  For a printable version of the guide, please click here.  Free copies are also available at Town Hall.

For details regarding the purchase of plots, burials or general information please feel free to contact the Clerk’s Office by telephone at (613) 623-4231 ext. 1819 or by e-mail at emelanson@arnprior.ca.

Columbaria Information

The growing acceptance of cremation as a method of disposition has generated a demand for an attractive alternative of memorialization. One such alternative is a columbarium (or plural columbaria). A columbarium is a freestanding, above-ground structure with recesses in the walls (to house urns) for the perpetual care of cremated remains. These recesses (compartments) in the walls are referred to as “niches” and are large enough in size to accommodate two standard cremation urns. Each niche is adorned with an individually inscribed granite panel to memorialize your loved one(s).

For detailed information regarding our Columbarium Niche inscriptions, please click here to access our order form.

The Town of Arnprior has installed two Forty-eight Niche Columbaria in the Albert Street Cemetery. Those interested in receiving more information or if you would like to purchase a niche, please contact the Town of Arnprior at 613-623-4231 ext. 1818 or 1819.
