Located within the Innisfil/Barrie area there are several cemeteries; Innisvale Cemetery & Crematorum, St. James, Sixth Line, St. Paul's Anglican, Barrie Union, St. Mary's Catholic, Thornton Union, Ivy Anglican, Ivy Presbyterian, Cookstown United and St. John's Anglican.
It should be noted that these cemeteries may have policies in place that limit burials to families with immediate connections to the community. As these smaller cemeteries approach capacity, guidelines have been implemented to ensure that locals have access to plots. Although we do not sell plots, feel free to contact our office and we will assist you in finding the name and phone number of the cemetery contact person(s).
Burial outside of the local area is very common related to the fact that much of the population of this area is composed of families who have relocated from other communities. We can arrange for burials within Ontario, Canada and worldwide. Specific requests can be addressed by contacting our office.
A limited number of cemeteries also offer entombment. As an alternative to burial in ground, the casket is placed in a wall above ground. These buildings, often referred to as mausoleums, will vary greatly in size and style depending on their location. Some mausoleums spaces are located in exterior structures and others are accessed from the inside of large buildings. It should be noted that this method of disposition is more expensive than burial. In this immediate area Innisvale Cemetery & Crematorium in Innisfil is the only location that currently has an inventory of entombment space available for immediate sale. A select number of cemeteries offer space for private mausoleums. A private mausoleum is a structure that belongs to one family only; the owner has the control over who will be entombed. The privilege of private entombment will understandably come at a higher cost.
