What are my options at Calgary’s Mausoleum?

Mausoleum burial is becoming more popular with many communities as an alternative to ground burial. Calgary’s first mausoleum is housed at Queen’s Park Cemetery, and is a city owned facility.

A mausoleum provides permanent above-ground entombment, and is based on popular European traditions dating back before the time of Christ.

The casket is placed into the mausoleum wall and sealed. The wall of a mausoleum is generally about five to six caskets in height. In Calgary, crypt panels are made from high-quality Italian marble with plaques or photographs for the deceased as a memorial tribute. Flower vases can be affixed to the wall as well.

Calgary’s mausoleum offers a variety of configurations and prices ranges, starting at about $5,280. For more information, call the Calgary Cemeteries and Mausoleum information line at (403) 221-3660.
