Guide to Services and Goods

Hamilton’s municipal cemeteries offer several beautiful locations to suit individual and family preferences. Hamilton Municipal Cemeteries operates 69 cemeteries across Hamilton, including cemeteries in the communities of Stoney Creek, Flamborough, Dundas and Glanbrook.

Choosing a final resting place is an important decision. For family and friends, having a permanent place to visit, remember and reflect can aid in the grieving process and help create a legacy for generations to come.

We would be honored to assist you in arranging burial or cremation options at one of our cemeteries.

Cemetery Ownership Options

Like funeral homes, cemeteries can offer many worthy options to a family, depending on their personal taste and budget. You can select individual burial spaces for a casket or urn (if you select cremation) or a group of spaces for multiple family members. We encourage families to discuss the different options with our Family Services Coordinator.

Prices for interment rights (graves, crypts and cremation niches) can vary significantly from location to location in each of our 69 cemeteries. Not all options are available in all of our cemeteries. The information provided is a guideline. For more specific information regarding our prices, or for any other questions, please contact the cemetery office for a detailed price list for any of our 69 cemeteries.
