Payment Options

Interment Fees

When a grave needs to be purchased at the time of death, the cemetery collects the cost of the grave and the opening fees from the family prior to the graveside service. Otherwise, the funeral home pays the opening at the graveside service, and is added to the bill for the funeral. Some funeral directors may ask the executor for a cheque from the estate, payable to the cemetery, to be given to the cemetery at the graveside service.

Pre-need Payment

The Lakefield Cemetery has established a Pre-need Trust Fund so that Cremation Fees and Opening Fees may be prepaid in advance of need at the current rate. This provides peace of mind knowing these necessary expenses are covered and are not subject to increase.

Accepted Forms of Payment

The following forms of payment are accepted at the Lakefield Cemetery Office:
