“Forever a Baby” Memory Service 2014-10-26 14:00

“Forever a Baby”  - Memory Service

Mount Royal Cemetery has created a special children’s garden for the burial of babies who have died before and after birth. We hope this perpetual garden will offer you a place for peaceful reflection and comforting visits.

You are invited to a non-religious, bilingual memorial service and symbolic burial to honor the memories of babies who died through pregnancy termination, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death.

Families and friends are invited to attend and may participate by sharing a poem, reading, music or by burying a symbolic reminder of their special babies who have died.

We especially welcome children to take part in the service.
Refreshments will be served.

Please call to reserve or for more information:

A brand new app. the 160 year old Mount Royal Cemetery into the digital age! 2014-11-30 08:00

geoguide.logos engA brand new app. the 160 year old Mount Royal Cemetery into the digital age!

A new free Mobile App designed for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices is a great way to experience the nature and history of Mount Royal Cemetery, a National Historic Site founded in 1852.

This App offers you a pocket sized tour guide to visit the property at your own pace. Thanks to geolocation (GPS), as you wander in the Cemetery, you will be notified each time you go by one of the 70 points of interest such as famous people’s monuments and rare trees. An interactive map will help you locate the interesting sites while historical information, written and audio, as well as many photographs will appear on your screen.

The application can also be used with non-GPS enabled devices or off-site; you can browse the list of points of interest from any location. The application is completely self-contained and once it is downloaded, no data connection is needed to tour the Cemetery.

This new App entitled “Mount Royal Cemetery Geoguide” is available on the App Store. It is one of the numerous projects of the organization of the Friends of the Mount Royal Cemetery which also offers numerous activities such as guided tours on history, trees and birds.

Mount Royal Commemorative Services are pleased to offer our Good Grief Workshop for Children and Adolescents who have experienced the death of someone close to them. This free workshop is for children and adolescents 4 – 15 years old.

Age-specific groups led by a team of trained volunteers will provide a group format to help children understand and express their grief.

On the same day, we also offer a concurrent Parent Discussion Group to give parents/guardians the opportunity to discuss the topic of children’s grief.
