Pre-planning

It’s common for people to make end-of-life arrangements prior to their passing, including pre-purchase plots, crypt spaces or cremation urns.

Advantages of pre-planning

  • Pre-planning is an act of love because it means your friends and family will not need to make last-minute decisions at an already stressful and emotional time.
  • It also relieves your friends and family of the financial burden of paying for your final arrangements.
  • Your family will know exactly what to do, ensuring that the funeral services are provided according to your wishes, preferences and beliefs.
  • Like most other products, cemetery plots, niches and crypts increase in price over time, so pre-purchasing can help you save money in the future.
  • If you change your mind after pre-purchasing, and decide to rest in a different cemetery or go through a different funeral process, you can always sell your plot, niche or crypt.

For more information, call 403-221-3660 Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

History

The Queen's Park Cemetery only dates back to 1940, so its history is relatively recent for a cemetery. Originally, the cemetery offered sections for graves with upright monuments only. Nearly a century later, the cemetery offers sections for flat markers (flat stones set flush to the ground) to lessen upkeep costs, as well as a variety of columbaria, which act as a final resting place for cremated remains. The Field of Honour is also located at Queen’s Park Cemetery and includes many of Calgary’s veterans of the First World War, the Second World War and the Korean War and more recent conflicts.

The now-mature Queen's Park Cemetery is a favourite spot for walkers, runners and nature lovers from North Hill and neighbouring communities.
