Options for burials and the interment of cremated remains

Mountain View Cemetery has spaces for casket burial (which also allow for the interment of cremated remains) as well as options solely for cremated remains.

To purchase a space, contact our office to make an appointment.

In-ground casket burial space

Casket burial lots at Mountain View Cemetery are "double-depth" to accommodate two caskets as well as up to eight cremated remains. Mountain View also gives families the option to re-use existing casket spaces once 40 years have passed after a burial. (Any remains from the previous burial are carefully placed lower in the grave to accommodate the new casket).

Mountain View is a Green Burial Council-certified hybrid green cemetery which means that the Cemetery allows biodegradable urns, caskets, and shrouds and does not require casket vaults and liners or the process of embalming.

Above-ground cremation space (columbaria)

A columbarium is an above-ground structure with compartments (called 'niches') designed to hold interments of cremated remains.

Mountain View Cemetery's columbaria consist of a number of walls with companion niches which can accommodate up to two cremation interments. Stone panels are affixed to the front of the niches and these can be inscribed if the family wishes.

For those desiring space for up to 20 cremation interments, Mountain View offers custom-built family columbaria. Contact our office for details.

In-ground cremation space

Mountain View Cemetery also offers cremation graves with space for either two or four interments.

Arranging a burial or interment of cremated remains

Interments are generally scheduled from Monday to Friday with the first appointment being at 8:30am and the last at 3:00pm.  Weekend interments are possible depending on staff availability (an overtime charge would apply). Mountain View Cemetery requires at least one working days' notice to book a weekday interment and we prefer at least five days' notice for weekend interments.

For more information or to book an interment, contact our office.

Selling, transferring, or refunding an interment space

Mountain View Cemetery does not allow the private re-sale of interment spaces. However, a rights holder may transfer their interment space to a direct family member or return the space to the Cemetery for a partial refund of its original purchased price.
