Long Description:
The You Are Here map is located just to the right of the entrance to the cemetery.

The Naramata Cemetery is a small rural cemetery located within the Okanagan-Similkameen Regional District. There are approximately 400 interments some without headstones. The cemetery was established in the early 1900s as the first known burial was in 1901.

This is an interesting cemetery with its rustic natural setting. Large trees border most of the perimeter of the cemetery and the area within the cemetery is lawn, that is well care for by town of Naramata.

In 2013, a revitalization project was completed and a new rock wall was added at the entrance to the cemetery. The name of the cemetery was added to this new addition.

The Naramata Cemetery Scattering Garden is another new addition to the cemetery and completed in June 2014. There is a plaque attached to a large upright stone located further down the pathway.

NEW SCATTERING GARDEN

Newly created Tranquility Garden within the Naramata Cemetery offers families the opportunity to scatter the cremated remains of loved ones in a permanent reflective, natural setting. The Tranquility Garden has been created with walking pathways, benches and a reflection space for families all in a natural landscaped section of the cemetery.

The garden includes a memorial monument for families wishing to place a bronze plaque in memory of their loved one.
