St. John’s Cemetery and Columbarium:
A Community Burial Ground Since 1839

Located in the heart of Halifax Regional Municipality on the Halifax peninsula, St. John’s Cemetery is one of several cemeteries on peninsular Halifax and one of only a few that are open to the burial of persons of all faiths. Although the cemetery is owned and operated by the Parish of St. John’s Anglican Church, Halifax, people expressing a faith in God, regardless of creed or ethnic background, are welcome to purchase burial and committal rights within our Cemetery and Columbarium.

We take pride in the care and maintenance of our Cemetery and Columbarium. Our own staff maintains the grounds and interments are possible Monday through Saturday (excepting holidays and days with extremely poor weather and grounds conditions) year round in all seasons.

Our Columbarium, completed in 1994 and built on the site of the original parish church, is one of only two columbariums of such style in the metro area and the only one that offers access for visitation 12 hours per day 365 days of the year.
