The main road inside the Cumberland Cemetery will be temporarily closed on weekdays from October 11 to October 27, 2017 during work to realign the road and install landscaping.
The cemetery will continue to be open to the public, but vehicle access may be restricted on weekdays. Members of the public who visit the cemetery during construction are asked to make their presence known to crews working.
This work is part of the implementation of the Cumberland Cemeteries Master Plan. The main road into the cemetery will be realigned and resurfaced, and landscaping and irrigation will be installed along the new roadway. The work also includes initial natural burial landscaping, and a pathway to a new natural burial area.
More information about natural burial at the Cumberland Cemetery will be available in winter 2018. To view the Master Plan, see the Cumberland Cemetery page.Search again
