The Islamic Cemetery of Niagara Burial Info:
Islamic Society of Niagara Peninsula and St.Catharines Mosque work together in order to provide Burial Lots for any Muslim in the Niagara Peninsula. The Islamic Cemetery of Niagara is located at Yokom Road in Niagara Falls.
To process a legal burial that complies with provincial laws, a Lot must be first purchased. In order to to purchase a lot for burial we require:
- A Completed Application Form available from either of the two mosques.
- A Burial Order which is only available from City Hall after presenting them with a death certficate.
- The price of a Burial Lot does NOT include other services such as washing of the body, kafan, box, opening and closing of the graves, transportation or any Funeral Home services. Volunteers provide their services free for washing/ghusl and request that immediate family members of the deceased participate in the process whenever possible.
Please contact the either Mosque for full price details as well as the current price of the Burial Lot.
