St John's Norway Cemetery and Crematorium
 
 

How may we serve you?

St. John's Norway provides a complete range of services, cremation, chapel, interment and memorialization that can respond to the cultural and financial requirements of each individual or family, as they wish. We therefore encourage commemoration of the deceased in ways that are appropriate to the unique preferences and culture of the lives they lived.

 

Chapel

Our nondenominational Chapel was built to accommodate all services associated with cremation and seats approximately fifty people.

Crematorium

With the Crematorium and Chapel, full cremation services are provided for the community and greater Toronto area.

Niches

The aboveground niches on the exterior wall of the Chapel and the free-standing niche monuments can accommodate two to four urns. They are faced with granite and a bronze wreath is available to memorialize individuals.

Cremation Interment

Inground interment may also take place in your existing family lot, a new lot, or in the Berkeley Cremation Garden. Cremated remains may also be scattered at the Eastwood Scattering Garden.

Casket Interment

St. John's continues to offer a wide variety of choice of inground lots which are available throughout the Cemetery.

Memorialization

Markers and monuments are a lasting memorial to your loved one. A variety of flat markers, in granite or bronze, and a wide selection of upright monuments may be purchased through the Cemetery office.

Restoration

If you have a memorial marker or monument at St. John's, you may contact the cemetery office directly to arrange for cleaning, highlighting and resetting. See the contact page here ».

Inscriptions

Existing monuments and flat markers may be updated as required. St. John's utilizes highly skilled artisans to match existing lettering and graphic components. This work is frequently done onsite.

 

 

 

Memorial Trees

You may dedicate a tree to the memory of a loved one. A small bronze plaque on a granite pillow is placed at the base of the tree. A variety of suitable trees are available for your selection. Memorial trees also provide St. John's with natural greenery while offering an added source of beauty and enjoyment for everyone. See the brochure about this here »

Wreaths

Colourful seasonal wreaths and vase bouquets are available for purchase at the Cemetery office

Annual Gardens

St. John's provides garden services to enhance the appearance of individual lots. Gardens are planted in the early part of June, weather permitting, with a wide range of colourful flowers. This service includes planting, fertilizing, weeding and regular watering through to September.

Interment Rights

The owner of the Interment Rights has complete authority over all burials and memorialization of their lot. When the owner of the interment rights dies, the executor/trix of their estate should transfer these rights to a survivor. A nominal fee is charged for this service and a new Interment Rights Certificate is issued.

Administration

St. John's Norway Cemetery and Crematorium operates under a comprehensive set of bylaws that have been approved by the Provincial Government.

A printed copy of these bylaws may be obtained from the office. You may also view /download a copy of the by-laws here »
