Costs include the supply and installation of concrete foundations for upright monuments, installation of flat markers, application reviews and coordinating installation with monument dealers. Local monument dealers will include these fees in their costs and forward the appropriate fee to the cemetery on your behalf.
Some areas of the cemetery will require a concrete foundation, while others have a concrete strip in place. Both options provide a level and stable surface for the monument.
Flat marker sections do not require a concrete foundation or concrete strip.
IMPORTANT: There are regulations specifically governing the size, type, material and placement of all monuments in the cemetery (Please see Monument Regulations). The City of Saskatoon accepts no responsibility for any monument work initiated prior to the approval of the application.
Columbarium niches can be inscribed after purchase. The only limitation is the number of characters that will fit on the plaque. There is an additional fee for any inscriptions required in the future.
Permanent In-Ground Vase
In accordance with the Bylaws and Regulations, plastic floral arrangements must be placed in a vase. Below is an example of a vase used for flat marker sections. The vase can be turned upside-down to prevent damage when not in use or for winter storage.
A columbarium vase may be purchased and installed at a certain niche, allowing floral arrangements to be placed in accordance with the Bylaws and Regulations.
Memorial Tree Stand
In the past, memorial tree stands were solely used to remember those who served in the military (See Memorial Boulevard). However, they may now be purchased to remember all loved ones. The family or individual may choose the plaque inscription for available trees in the Woodlawn Cemetery that do not have memorial tree stands present.
