The Municipality of Clarington maintains four active non-denominational cemeteries:

We take pride in maintaining our cemeteries, but also recognize the important contributions individuals and families make to the ongoing maintenance of the cemetery grounds.

We offer burials year round. Please call 905-623-3379 ext. 2107 for more information or to arrange for an interment.

To purchase a location, please call the Grounds Keeper at 905-260-0743 to arrange for a meeting.

In addition to our four active cemeteries, there are 33 inactive cemeteries in Clarington, maintained by volunteers.

Bowmanville Cemetery

Location: 1330 Haines Street, Bowmanville

The Bowmanville Cemetery was established in 1857 on approximately 20 acres of land purchased from James Grant. Five other cemeteries were closed throughout Bowmanville in the following 22 years and grave sites were moved to this present location.

Bondhead Cemetery

Location: Northeast corner of Queen Victoria Street and Park Lane in Newcastle Village

Originally established by St. George's Anglican Church in Newcastle in 1857 on approximately three acres of land. St. George's had originally planned to build a church on the grounds but changed the location; it was built on Mill Street in Newcastle Village instead. The Municipality took over the cemetery in 1972.

Hampton Cemetery

Location: South of Concession 6 on Old Scugog Road, Hampton

In 1925, the Hampton Cemetery Board received $425 to manage both the Bible Christian Cemetery and the Hampton Union Cemetery.

St. George's Cemetery

Location: 2 Browview Road, Newcastle

Originally established in 1873 on approximately two acres of land. St. George's is likely the earliest established cemetery in Clarke Township outside of private plots. St. George's is the final resting place of Samuel Wilmot who, as an early settler, was the first surveyor to survey Clarke Township.
