Cemetery Care

Recognizing and respecting the sentimental nature of the Innisfail Cemetery, the Town of Innisfail strives to maintain the cemetery grounds in the most sensitive, least intrusive manner possible. In doing so, the Town of Innisfail works diligently to ensure the premises remain exceptionally well maintained while ensuring that the family can honour and remember their loved ones.

Perpetual Care Fund

The Cemetery Perpetual Care Fund is used to ensure the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the cemetery grounds. A portion of the purchase of a plot is allocated to the Perpetual Care Fund and is used to cover expenses such as landscaping, mowing, road maintenance, and general upkeep of plots and markers. This ensures that the cemetery remains well maintained in perpetuity, providing a respectful and dignified resting place for the deceased and a serene environment for visitors and loved ones.

Working within rules and regulations as set out by the Cemeteries Act and the Cemetery Bylaw (Bylaw 1691-2022), the following is advised:

  • Planting of any woody ornamentals such as trees, shrubs, or hedges is not permitted in the cemetery.
  • Fences, railings, or walls are not permitted to be placed around plots.
  • Refrain from tying or attaching any adornments or decorations to trees, benches, and shrubbery.
  • Breakable vases, ornaments and decorations are not permitted in the cemetery.
  • Should you wish to add a specific monument or structure such as a planter, vase, statue, bench, or lawn ornament please contact the Town of Innisfail.
  • When placing flowers in a columbarium niche, please be mindful to do so in a way that avoids impeding or obstructing others adjoining or immediately adjacent.
  • All flowers will be removed from plots 30 days after an interment.

For further information — and/or to seek clarification on any of the items above, please contact the Town Office at 403-227-3376

Commonwealth War Graves

Hidden in the far south section of the Innisfail Cemetery are 15 Commonwealth War Graves. Thirteen World War Two graves are located in one border, while two separate World War One graves are found in the southeast portion of the cemetery.

Each season, the Town of Innisfail partners with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) to beautify and maintain the 15 graves. The Town agrees to maintain the border to standards set out by the commission. This includes the mowing of the turf, and designing, planting and maintaining the flowers within the border from May to October. The Town receives a horticultural maintenance fee annually, from the CWGC for costs associated with the border. The border is inspected annually by a horticulture inspecting officer, who recommends improvements necessary to elevate the level of care.
