Rates & Options
We offer a variety of options for cemetery plots and columbarian options, preparing the grave for interment and memorialization services. Please see the fee brochure for a complete listing of rates and contact our staff for a consultation or with any questions you may have.
This includes all aspects of preparing the grave for interment (burial) during regular cemetery hours. Services include excavation, setup of the lowering device and greens, closing the grave after the service and landscaping of the site. A part of this fee contributes to maintaining permanent records in the cemetery office for future generations. Please contact the office for information on disinterring of human remains.
During the winter months the interment preparation requires longer time for snow clearing and digging through ground frost. Winter fees are adjusted to reflect these extra costs.
Winter Rates: November 15 to April 30
Summer Rates: May 1 to November 14
Below is an outline of the different interment services that Woodlawn Cemetery offers. Please note that the opening and closing service fees are included in each of the options.
A variety of options are available for casket and cremation, including upright monument, flat marker, columbarium options, and religious and non-denominational sections.
Interments, whether for casket or cremation, must be protected by a vault. We provide several options for purchase. Domes may also be provided by a funeral home, provided they meet our specifications.
A variety of memorialization options are available, including monuments, columbarium inscription, vases and memorial tree stands.
Perpetual Care Fund
Part of the interment fees go towards the Woodlawn Cemetery’s Perpetual Care Fund. This fund ensures that long-term care, maintenance and landscaping are carried out to the highest standards.
In addition, there is a Monument Perpetual Care Fund with fees varying with the type and size of the monument. This fund is used for the ongoing care of monuments such as levelling of upright or flat markers.
All plot fees include a mandatory contribution for the first interment, and each additional interment in the same plot requires further contribution to this fund. Fees vary according to whether it is a casket or cremation interment.
You may place a landscape request if you have an issue with an interment site (i.e., sunken grave or unleveled monument). To place a landscape request, please contact the office. The City of Saskatoon is not responsible for the replacement of monuments that are deteriorating or vandalized.
All cemeteries are governed by the Cemeteries Act, 1999 which states that all cemeteries composed of 12 or more plots must establish a trust fund. Only the income from this fund can be applied to the maintenance costs, while the principle must remain untouched.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
To return a plot, the rights holder must present a letter which states they want to return the plot to the City of Saskatoon. The City will refund 85 per cent of the original purchase payment. For more information on purchase, sale and transfer of interment rights, please see the Bylaws and Regulations. Please contact the office for further assistance.
Saskatoon's Woodlawn Cemetery has seen approximately 63,000 burials since it was first opened. To find the location of your loved one or to access cemetery records, please use the Cemetery Burial Search.
