Delta has two municipal cemeteries: North Delta Cemetery and Boundary Bay Cemetery. Both cemeteries are managed by Delta staff, and on-site interments are coordinated through the Delta Parks, Recreation & Culture department by the Cemetery Administrator. Services include in-ground (full burial and cremation) and above ground (Niche Wall and Scatter Garden) services. Scatter Garden service is available at Boundary Bay Cemetery only.
Note: Interment services are purchased at time of need only.

Permit Fees are dependent on marker size. Please contact our Cemetery Administrator at 604-952-3176 for further information, or please refer to the Delta Cemetery Services brochure.
