Cataraqui Cemetery and Funeral Services

The Cataraqui Cemetery Company is a not for profit cemetery since 1850 that operates on behalf of its Interment Rights Holders (members).  The Cemetery has been designated as a National Historic Site of Canada due to its unique landscape design and historical significance.  Rich in cultural heritage and history it is also the resting place of Canada's first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald and remains a cemetery for the citizens of Kingston and area.  Kingston's 'Garden Cemetery' is the areas largest and continues to be an active cemetery that offers families traditional cemetery plots and services.  To meet the need of the families and community we serve, Cataraqui has expanded its offering of services to include cremation,  monuments and now funeral services and alternatives.

Cataraqui Cemetery and Funeral Services, operated by The Cataraqui Cemetery Company, has developed a selection of services that is unprecedented in the Kingston area.  Over that course of the last decade, more and more families began if Cataraqui Cemetery could come to them and receive their loved one into our care for cremation funeral services.  Due to changing consumer attitudes and recent changes to provincial legislation, we are proud to announce that, we are a licensed provider of funeral services that can now meet the cremation and alternative funeral needs of many Kingston area families. Funeral Directors are now on staff to assist families with their funeral arrangements. We offer the convenience and continuity of care that families can only receive by dealing with a single provider for their funeral, cremation, cemetery and monument needs.  Affordable and value conscious programs are available to everyone.  Even if interment arrangements have been secured at other local cemeteries, Cataraqui's simple cremation and alternative funeral services are available.  Monument design and installation services are available as well. 

You are welcome to explore our website or to meet with us in person to learn more about why Cataraqui Cemetery is Kingston's Historic Garden Cemetery and a trusted service provider for over 160 years.  We are pleased to  answer any questions that you may have regarding your wishes and pre-planning options for  traditional cemetery services; crematorium services; funeral services (cremation and alternative) and monuments (design and installation).  

As a not for profit registered charity, the cemetery's volunteer programs, gardening programs as well as its heritage,  historical and genealogical significance may also be of interest.
