We hope you will read the rules set forth in the booklet carefully. Their sole objective is to respect, protect and beautify the burial places under the care of the Board, and to ensure the care of the graves in the Cemetery.
It is hoped that any misunderstanding between Interment Rights Holders and the Management of the Cemetery might thus be prevented. We are sure that you will co-operate with the Board in this.
The Board may, from time to time, repeal the rules or parts thereof in such a manner as in their discretion will best serve the interests of the property under their control, subject to the approval of the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, Consumer Protection Branch, Cemeteries Regulations Unit.
The by-laws are the rules and regulations that govern St. Andrew's - St. James' Cemetery and have been approved by the Registrar of Cemeteries, FBCSA, Cemeteries Regulations Unit, Ministry of Government and Consumer Services.
There is a Business Manager in charge who, along with other Cemetery staff, will be pleased to advise you concerning matters relating to the Cemetery.

St. Andrew's and St. James' Cemetery was organized in 1873 by the congregations of the Orillia Presbyterian Church (St. Andrew's) and the St. James' Anglican Church for the community. The Cemetery is administered by a Board of Trustees consisting of four members from the Presbyterian congregation and four members from the Anglican congregation.
