Visiting Woodlawn Memorial Park

Woodlawn Memorial Park is a not-for-profit organization that has provided a beautiful resting place for loved ones since 1854.

Our park is more than a multicultural and multi-denominational cemetery, it’s a network of over 4 kilometres of trails, a place to enjoy the changing seasons, a museum filled with art and history, a habitat for honey bees, a memorialization of families and friends, the backdrop for a number of community events, and it even has its own arbour fund to ensure the well-being of the hundreds of trees that thrive in the park.

Whether you’re at Woodlawn Memorial Park to lay a loved one to rest, visiting the memorial or marker of someone special, or enjoying a walk through the grounds, we invite you to experience all that this special place has to offer.

What we do

Cemetery Arrangements

Throughout our lives we plan for many life events: marriage, children, higher education and retirement. However, many of us face difficulty thinking about or planning for what will happen when we’re gone.

Pre-planning for burial or cremation is an important conversation to have with family and gives an opportunity for you to openly discuss your ideas and choices with your loved ones.

Without this, your loved ones are faced with making an emotional decision during a vulnerable time in their lives. We take that burden off your loved ones with our pre-planning services.

At-Need Services

When a death of a loved one has occurred, whether a family member or friend it is never an easy experience. The team at Woodlawn Memorial Park are here to help and guide you through what your next steps should be.

If you and your family require assistance in selecting a final resting place for your loved one, we invite you to visit Woodlawn Memorial Park as we have lots of options for you and your family to choose from.

Memorials & Monuments

Memorialization is the term used for monuments or markers in a cemetery, and memorializing the memory of your loved one is easier than you think.

A memorial marks a grave, but it can also tell the story of a life through its shape, size, detail, and finish.

A monument might tell us the person was young, old, had traditional, formal, or contemporary taste. The face of a monument is like a blank canvas, it can be ornate or simple and elegant.

Woodlawn Memorial Park offers in-house design assistance to help you choose a monument or flat marker in bronze or granite.

Monuments are a beautiful way to honour a loved one and provide a meaningful place for friends and family to visit and pay tribute.

Choose from a range of styles and shapes, or select a custom shape, sculpture, and engraving. From ground level or upright memorials, our designer will translate the design idea in your heart into granite or bronze. We can help you select the perfect monument with a unique inscription that will memorialize the special person it symbolizes.

Bronze Markers

Selected areas at Woodlawn have been designed for memorials made of bronze only, like the Cremation Gardens. The wreaths, ceremonial plaques, lawn markers, and olive scrolls are all made of bronze. Our bronze memorials are created by Matthews and Phoenix, long considered the standard of excellence in cemetery bronze.

A concentrated use of bronze adds a warm, rich glow to the area. Bronze memorials are attractive features that add to the ambiance of the surroundings in which they are found.

Inscription Services

Our professional inscriber will carve the information on the granite memorials. It is precise, exacting work that requires an experienced eye and steady hand. Letter styles and sizes are confidently matched so that new inscription complements the old.

Our memorialist will help guide you through the process of translating what’s in your heart into a beautiful tribute cast in bronze or carved in stone.

This year our expansion is set to begin!

Our General Manager, Rebecca Kit, has been working hard on the expansion development, located across the railroad track near our Lilac Block. We are excited about this new addition as it will offer more options to better serve our families. It will include:

* A Natural Green Burial option

* Traditional and cremation burial space

* New, unique cremation options to serve our families of all faiths and religions

Stay tuned for more details as progress begins. Subscribe to our newsletter to follow along.
