Cremation Burials

The City of Airdrie Cemetery offers an in ground cremation section. Each lot in the cremation section offers families the option of interring four standard size urns or two companion urns.


Over the years, Columbaria have become a popular interment alternative to traditional burial.

A columbarium is a structure that accommodates cremation urns. The four Columbaria at the Airdrie Cemetery are round dome units and have granite tablets which are constructed of 3/4" natural black granite slabs and may be engraved to the family's liking.

These niches serve a similar purpose to that of a grave site monument and becomes a place for family and loved ones to visit and pay their respects.

Some niches may accommodate up to two regular size urns. Please contact the Parks department to ensure proper dimensions prior to purchasing urn(s).


Lot owners may place a headstone at any time, before, or after a burial takes place. 

A monument permit is required for all new monuments, headstones, and footmarkers placed at a grave.
