 Covid-19

By the Order of the General Manager of the Lindsay Cemetery Corporation, please adhere to the following:

Due to the situation with COVID-19 outbreak, Riverside Cemetery and Crematorium have closed all public access to Cemetery grounds.  This decision has been made to keep everyone safe, as we do not want to promote any gatherings.  We are an essential service being the largest Cemetery within the City of Kawartha Lakes with the only operating Crematorium and can therefore not risk any exposure to staff.   If a need to access the Cemetery is of great urgency please call our office at 705-324-2431 for possible escorted entry.  (please remember this request will likely be denied at this current time).

We will be running full normal operations of the Cemetery and Crematorium during this difficult time.  All Cemetery grounds care and our flower bed program will not be affected in anyway.  Our sales office is also in full operation, all contact can be done via email, fax or phone.  Winter Wreaths will be removed and held in a secured area for pickup once COVID-19 restrictions permit us to re-open the Cemetery gates to the public.

We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time.

Timothy Godfrey

General Manager of the Lindsay Cemetery Corporation
