About St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery
Consecrated in the year of Confederation, 1867, St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery has been a fixture and an integral part of the Catholic Community in Barrie for almost 140 years.
Originally meant to meet the needs of St. Mary’s Parish, the cemetery has grown with the city and the Catholic Community to now also serve St. John Vianney parish, Holy Spirit parish and Our Lady of Grace parish in Angus and the surrounding area.
St. Mary’s Cemetery, steeped in Barrie’s past, is poised to serve Barrie‘s Catholics in the future.
St. Mary’s Cemetery is centrally located on Sunnidale Road across from Sunnidale Park in Barrie. A selection of burial services is available.
The cremation columbaria at St. Mary’s Cemetery are granite structures with niches where urns with cremated remains may be placed. A bronze plaque is attached to the niche to memorialize the deceased. This area of the cemetery is peaceful and a place of prayer for our loved ones.
Upright Monument Lots
St. Mary’s Cemetery offers a selection of ground interment options. There are single and double grave lots which can accommodate upright monuments. Also available are shared monument lots whereby the monument has already been erected and the purchaser receives inscription rights to one side of the monument.

Another ground interment choice is a grave with a bronze marker (memorial) set flush to the ground with a granite base. These flat bronze marker graves are located in Shrine Sections featuring beautiful religious statues amongst carefully maintained flower gardens.
