In-ground whole body burial and above ground entombment are established and respected practices which many still choose today. If other family members have been buried or entombed in a mausoleum, it can be reassuring for the surviving members and future generations to know that their family tradition continues. The resurgence of green burial and natural death care options in recent years has encouraged people to continue their sustainable life values at death.

- Most cemeteries require 48 hours notice prior to the date of burial.
- Conventional Burial is different from Green Burial, click here to learn why
- Burial can only take place on property the provincial government has designated as suitable for burial.
- Every cemetery has its own unique bylaws so what is protocol or expected practice at one cemetery is not necessarily the same at another cemetery.
- All funeral homes, regardless of who owns them, can organize a burial at any cemetery, regardless of who owns the cemetery. In other words, if your cemetery of choice owns and operates a funeral home, you are not obligated to use their funeral home.
- Cemetery plots used for full-body burial (vs cremated remains burial) often have room to include 1 or more set of cremated remains.
- There are many cemeteries in the Lower Mainland. To review our list of municipal, private faith-based and green burial cemeteries, read more.
