The Township of Hornepayne manages the Hornepayne Cemetery, located at 8 Becker Rd. We offer both traditional burial plots and niches in our columbarium (displayed urns and cremated remains). Our Cemetery Board ensures the cemetery's smooth running and upkeep, makes improvements and plans for necessary expansion in the future.
Our Cemetery By-law outlines the Township's rules and regulations around:
- Cemetery administration
- Sale and transfer of interment rights
- Monuments and markers
- Cemetery maintenance
- Burial ordering and contracts
