Cemetery renovation information and map

A cemetery is a special place for remembering and celebrating the life of a loved one.  It is also a place for reflecting, walking and enjoying nature.  When you select the Port Coquitlam Cemetery, you place your trust with us to ensure your loved ones are remembered as you wish.

Port Coquitlam Cemetery - ColumbariumThe City of Port Coquitlam offers options to honour life in the face of loss. In addition to traditional casket internment and cremation plots, we offer a wide range of services to create a fitting tribute. The City of Port Coquitlam is dedicated to providing understanding care and exceptional service to its customers.

The Port Coquitlam Cemetery Map offers an aerial view of the tranquil surrounding of the cemetery, search tool for locating a loved one,  pictures of grave marking and to search for available plots.

Cremation
Cremation and ash scattering gardens provide a tranquil place to reflect and remember, while a Columbarium provides a majestic resting place for a loved one's ashes.

Port Coquitlam Cemetery - Memory BookMemorial Alternatives
Commemorate a loved one in the Memory Book in the cemetery, or with a tree in Peace Park or a park bench.

There are a number of park benches installed throughout Port Coquitlam.  If you happen to see one without a dedication plaque on it, chances are it can be purchased as a donation.  The cost is $1,200.  The stainless steel 2 1/2" x 8" plaque can hold 4-5 lines of text and takes about 2-3 weeks to be made.  The bench itself could take a month or two depending on staff availability.

If the bench or plaque is vandalized, the City will replace the bench and/or plaque only once.

There are a number of Shirofugen Cherry (White Goddess) trees available for donation in Peace Park.  This picturesque park borders the Pitt River and the Traboulay PoCo Trail.  The donation is $750 and the 5" x 5" plaque can usually be installed in about two weeks time, depending on staff and the plaque company's availability.



The Cemetery's operation is governed through the Cemetery and Funeral Services Act through the Office of the Attorney General - Department of Consumer Affairs and Services and the City of Port Coquitlam.
