Burial lot options

Casket burial lots are available at Parkview Cemetery and Mount Hope Cemetery. Most lots permit  casket and 6 cremations per grave.

Options include:

  • single grave lots (1 casket, 6 cremations)
  • double grave lots (2 caskets side by side, 12 cremations)
  • three grave lots (3 caskets, 18 cremations)
  • four graves lots (4 caskets, 24 cremations)
  • estate lots (up to 6 caskets)

When you buy a lot you receive the 'interment right' to be buried that area. 

The "Interment Rights Holder" is designated by the purchaser and may be themselves and/or someone else. The City of Waterloo retains ownership of the property.
