Peace Cemetery

Peace Cemetery is a non-denominational cemetery operated by the Town of Devon and located on a quiet country road just off of Highway 19. Town staff are available to assist you in selecting and purchasing a plot that will meet the needs and wishes of you and/or your loved one. When burial arrangements are required, Town staff will coordinate the preparation of the gravesite with the funeral home of your choice or with you directly.

Perpetual Care Program

The Town of Devon provides ongoing care of the cemetery and all plots (excluding markers) at no additional cost or fee, other than the original purchase price. The town also provides ongoing improvement, preservation and enhancement services.

Field of Honour

A section of Peace Cemetery has been set aside as a Field of Honour for the burial of any person who has been in active service with the forces of Her Majesty or Her Majesty's allies. Spouses may also qualify for internment in the Field of Honour. 

Plot Options

  • Ash Plots (Cremation Burial) A section of Peace Cemetery has been designated to accommodate funeral urns. Smaller in size, ash plots can accommodate a maximum of two urns each. Urns or urn vaults must not exceed 18" inches (length) by 18" inches (width).
     
  • Standard Plots (Traditional Burial) Standard plots in Peace Cemetery are designed to accommodate one casket*. Standard plots can also accommodate up to a maximum of six urns*.

Please note: All casket burials require the installation of a concrete liner. This may be purchased from the Town of Devon or from the funeral home of your choice.

 
*Standard plots can accommodate both a casket AND up to six urns, however, the casket and liner MUST be interred first.

Notice of Burial

  • Weekdays The Town of Devon requires a minimum of two business days notice to prepare a gravesite for burial. A shorter notice may be acceptable or a longer notice period may be required depending on climatic conditions. Please contact the Town of Devon to discuss your particular requirements prior to making any firm arrangements. We will always do our best to accommodate and make every effort to assist you.
