Arrangements for Burial

The Township of Perth East works in co-operation with all local funeral homes. Arrangements are made by the Funeral Director, who will notify Township of Perth East staff of the date and time of funeral.

Care and Maintenance of Cemetery

Upon purchase of interment rights, a portion of that money is placed in a Care & Maintenance Fund. This Fund is a one-time fee per grave required by the Funeral, Burials, Cremations Services Act, 2002, and is used for the general maintenance and upkeep of the grave.

Winter Interment

Normally, winter burials are performed until there is a deep frost line or excessive amounts of snow. After that time, burials are rescheduled and caskets are placed in the mortuary and interred at a later date set by the Township of Perth East staff and the deceased's family.

Winter interments may be conducted for an additional fee.

Columbarium

The Greenwood Cemetery Columbarium was constructed in 2002 and contains 192 niches (spaces). Niches are priced in the same range or below that of traditional ground locations, and are designed to accommodate small urns.
