Installing memorial monuments and tablets
Jasper Cemetery Bylaw.
The Municipality of Jasper does not create or install monuments or tablets. Municipal staff mark plots accordingly for the installation of a tablet or marker; and are on call to aid with properly locating plots.
If there is already an adjoining monument on a plot, it is the responsibility of the family to move the monument prior to an interment.
All monuments and tablets must be approved by the Municipality of Jasper before installation. Please consult with us before having your marker created.
Once approved please inform the Municipality of Jasper of the date and time of installation. This will allow us to properly mark the plot.
