Cemeteries

Starland County manages seven cemeteries within our border for the benefit of all residents and plot owners.  These sites are managed in accordance with Bylaw 1055 - Cemetery Bylaw. The cemetery operations include:

  • the permitting of all works within the cemetery
  • sale of lots
  • record keeping
  • grounds maintenance
  • preservation and repairs to property
  • supervision of all works

There is also a cemetery committee for specific sites made up of local residents. The objective of the committee is to assist the County with long-range directives for the operation and care of the sites. The cemeteries have normal hours of operation for maintenance purposes from 8 am to 6 pm Monday – Friday. Work permits are required before any private work is commenced within our cemeteries and can be obtained through the County office in Morrin, Monday – Friday 8 am – 4 pm.  You can also download and fill out the form using the link below.
