Update March 16: The Capilano View Cemetery will remain open.
Capilano View offers a variety of interment options including full casket burial, burial of cremated remains and above-ground columbaria niches.
Since 1926, the Capilano View Cemetery has offered the residents of West Vancouver a tranquil place of beauty and history to remember and reflect.
A seating area including an ornamental water basin and table for preparing flowers and holding small gatherings is now open for use on the north-west corner of the Birch Area of the cemetery. We hope you will enjoy the view!
Plots for West Vancouver residents are sold at a lower rate than for non-residents. Residency is based on where the person for whom the lot is being purchased lives at the time of purchase. More Information
An interment is the burial of a deceased person in a full casket, or the burial of cremated remains in an in-ground plot. More Information
Inurnment is the setting of cremated remains in an above-ground structure called a columbaria niche. It takes approximately 7-10 days for a columbaria niche front to be engraved and delivered. More Information
All markers (headstone) require a permit. Most memorial marker companies will apply for the setting permit and add the fee to the cost of the marker and bill the client directly. More Information
Cut flowers or potted plants that fit into a supplied 4” container may be placed on a grave or a columbaria niche. Artificial flowers may be placed in the 4” flower containers from November 1 to March 31. More Information
