Cataraqui Cemetery and Funeral Services

Continuously owned and operated for over 167 years, Cataraqui Cemetery and Funeral Services is Kingston's not-for-profit provider of cemetery, monument, cremation and funeral services.  We meet the ever changing needs and diverse wishes of today's families by providing simpler options, corresponding services, added choices and more convenient arrangements.  

Since 1850, we continue as the same community minded,  not for profit cemetery,  but with more services.  Long trusted by the diverse community we share; our volunteer Board of Trustees and professional staff are committed to maintaining a high standard of client care by offering families a wide range of practical and comprehensive bereavement related services.   Additionally, as the stewards of this historic cemetery, we safeguard the final resting places of so many people and the civic history of the region we serve.

With plenty of acres still to be landscaped and new interment options added each year, the 91+ acre cemetery is a treasure to all Canadians. Cataraqui Cemetery is the final resting place of many generations of Kingstonians; including two fathers of Confederation, Sir Alexander Campbell and Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada's first Prime Minister.  We share our community's great pride in that the Cemetery is designated as a National Historic Site of Canada as well as an Ontario Cultural Heritage Landmark.  Families can rest assured knowing that Cataraqui Cemetery will be preserved for many more generations to come.
