The Cumberland Cemetery on Minto Road has been in continuous use since the mid 1890s. To help guide use and service of the cemetery over the next thirty years, a Cumberland Cemeteries Master Plan was completed in 2014.

The Village plans to begin implementing the master plan in 2015 and 2016, including the following projects:

  • design of a central mixed interment area
  • a new green burial area
  • realignment of entryway
  • painting and refurbishing of entry gates
  • installation of water system and irrigation system
  • landscaping and trees
  • topdressing of roadways
  • installation of block identification markers

Cemetery Hours

The cemetery is open dawn to dusk.

The vehicle gate is open 8:30am to dusk, daily.

Annual Spring Clean Up

Each April, Village staff tidies up and removes items that detract from the appearance of the cemetery.

If you have any personal items, mementos or artificial flowers on your loved one’s gravesite that need to be refreshed, please consider taking them home in March to be sure they aren’t removed by staff.
