How we can help
Cemetery choices are personal and address many traditional, cultural, religious and personal beliefs. Our primary role is to provide a final resting space for your loved one, whether through ground burial, crypt entombment, cremation, or with memorialization products, like headstones and markers. Our professional staff can work directly with you and your loved ones by calling 403-221-3660 or emailing CalgaryCemeteries@calgary.ca.
When to contact a licensed funeral home
We also work closely with licensed funeral homes. Among other things, funeral homes can help:
- hold and transport a body
- obtain a death certificate
- arrange the funeral, memorial and/or burial service
- prepare the obituary
- help notify the deceased's employer, attorney, insurance company and banks
- support you with the application for social assistance to cover the cost of funeral arrangements, if you have questions please contact Queen's Park Cemetery at 403-221-3660.
- offer grief support or direct you to other resources
Be sure to speak with your funeral home director about the information you see on our website.
