Welcome to Cataraqui Cemetery
Established over 160 years ago as Kingston's premier burial ground, Cataraqui Cemetery is a National Historic Site of Canada of historical significance because it is an attractive and well preserved example of a medium-sized rural (style) cemetery characterized by its uneven topography and naturalistic landscape with many varied perspectives laid out in the Picturesque manner. The cemetery's scenic vistas, ponds ornamental plantings and mature trees offer families a peaceful setting to reflect and remember those that have gone before us. Ever expanding to now occupy over 90 acres, Cataraqui Cemetery continues to provide the greater Kingston area with its only non-denominational, not for profit, public, garden cemetery. Families continue to rely on Cataraqui's age old commitment to provide interment options and services for families in need as well as for families that wish to pre-arrange and have peace of mind.
With ample space to provide for many more generations. Cataraqui Cemetery's beautiful gardens, traditional plots, crematorium and wide selection of selection of monuments are available, at a moment’s notice, to meet the needs of the community and your family.
We welcome you to explore the cemetery or this website to learn more about why our community and Kingston's families have trusted us for over 160 years. We are pleased to offer additional information and tours to help answer any questions you may have regarding your wishes for cemetery services, pre-planning options, monument and memorialization needs, cremation choices and genealogical record searches. As a not for profit registered charity the cemetery's volunteer programs, gardening programs as well as its heritage and historical significance may also be of interest.
