How to Purchase or Reserve a Lot or Niche:

Our staff understand that the death of a loved one is a very stressful time. In order to minimize some of that stress, a designated member of our staff will meet with you privately to answer any questions you may have on how to purchase or reserve a plot or niche.

Many people are now pre-planning and purchasing their cemetery lot(s) in advance. For pre-planning services, we ask that you contact our office at 780-992-6248 to schedule an appointment.

Monuments

The City of Fort Saskatchewan requires a Monument Compliance Permit be obtained prior to purchasing a monument to ensure it complies with all the Cemetery’s Bylaw requirements. It also protects the purchaser from purchasing the wrong type of monument. Once the Permit has been approved, you may then proceed with ordering your monument. Monument Compliance Permits can be obtained by contacting our office at 780-992-6248.

Columbarium Niche Covers

The City has an agreement in place with an appointed service provider to complete all inscriptions on the Columbarium's Niche covers. A Monument Compliance Permit is required to ensure inscriptions are done in accordance with the Cemetery Bylaw.

Family Research

Many people are researching their family tree or trying to locate someone who has been interred in the Fort Saskatchewan Cemetery.

Please submit your requests in writing or call 780-992-6248 to arrange an appointment with one of our staff.
