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.
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.
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.
Cremation Plots - A section of Peace Cemetery has been designated to accommodate urns. Smaller in size, cremation 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 - Standard plots in Peace Cemetery are designed to accommodate one casket*. Standard plots can also accommodate up to a maximum of six urns*.
Columbarium Niche - The columbarium is a double sided 48 niche above ground granite structure specifically designed to hold urns containing cremated remains. See our Columbarium and Niche FAQ.
Please note: All casket interments 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.
Weekdays - The Town of Devon requires a minimum of two business days notice to prepare a grave site for interment. 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.
Weekends, Evenings & Holidays - Interments that occur on Saturdays, Sundays, evenings or holidays are subject to overtime charges and require four business days notice. Please consult the Town of Devon for more information.

It is important that your chosen monument company are aware of our specifications for monuments as we cannot accommodate any deviation due to the layout of the runners. Any inqueries should be directed to the town office prior to purchase, as the town is not responsible for monument design or installation and is not liable for purchases made without a permission to install form signed by a Town of Devon representative.
IS IT ESSENTIAL THAT YOUR CHOSEN MONUMENT COMPANY COMPLETES AND RETURNS THE MONUMENT INSTALL SPECIFICATIONS BEFORE PURCHASE TO ENSURE THAT ALL GUIDELINES ARE MET.
