The Town of Magrath is providing a new option for burial at the Magrath Cemetery. Constructed by Sunset Memorial and Stone in Calgary, the columbarium is built out of solid granite slabs with a nylene frame to withstand the coldest Alberta winter.

The columbarium has been strategically aligned to have sides facing both east and west to catch the sun’s morning rise and evening set. The town will also be aesthetically landscaping the surrounding area ensuring for privacy and reverence. 

The columbarium has 48 niches and each niche is capable of holding up to two urns depending on size. Pricing for each niche in the columbarium is currently being determined and will be made available after town council’s approval.

Anyone interested in further information is asked to call the Town Hall at 403-758-3212.

Fire restriction notice

Effective Aug. 18, due to the drying and warmer temperatures that the town is currently faced with, the municipality is no longer issuing fire permits at this time.

Fire pits are allowed, however, conditions we be reviewed on a daily basis. Please use extreme caution while using any heat source outside.
