Seasonal Maintenance 

To meet community needs, the City of Cambridge has grave spaces and columbarium niches available at the historic Mount View Cemetery in Galt and New Hope Cemetery in Hespeler.  There are also grave spaces, niches and beautiful above-ground garden crypts available at the Parklawn Cemetery in Preston.  For more information or to arrange an appointment, please contact the Cemeteries Administration Office directly at 519-740-4681 Ext. 4299. 

As Autumn and Winter approach, it is the time to tend to the graves of your loved ones.  Please remove all wreaths, artificial flowers and any other lot decorations, including any items in front of monuments or markers, by October 7th.  This will give our cemetery staff access to complete their seasonal maintenance safely.

Please take a moment to check the signs posted in the cemetery and the cemetery by-laws for rules on lot decorations that are allowed from November 1st to April 30th

Thank you for helping us to preserve and protect our cemeteries.  The Cemeteries Administration Office can be reached directly at 519-740-4681 Ext. 4299, or e-mail us at cemeteries@cambridge.ca.

Exciting News!

The Chapel was built in 1928 to honour the late James Young (1835 to 1913).  Mr. Young was a well-known journalist, politician and businessman in Galt and also served on Canada’s first parliament in 1867.  He and his family are interred in the marble vault in the basement of the chapel.

We are happy to share with you that the restoration work to the stained-glass windows and the front wooden doors on the historical and beloved Young Chapel at Mount View Cemetery is complete.  The Young Chapel and the Cambridge Mausoleum were featured in this year’s Doors Open event on Saturday, September 21st.  An overwhelming 413 visitors joined our cemetery staff that day for an opportunity to see this historic gem!     

This charming chapel is available for rent at affordable rates for services, weddings and gatherings!  To inquire, contact the Cemeteries Administration Office directly at 519-740-4681 Ext. 4299 or e-mail us at cemeteries@cambridge.ca
