Eligibility for Field of Honour

Donation made: Oromocto Pioneer Gardens Cemetery Co. has received $1,000 from the New Brunswick-Prince Edward Island branch of the Last Post Fund. The fund is a non-profit corporation that works to ensure that no war veterans, military disabled pensioners or civilians who meet the wartime service criteria are denied a funeral and burial due to lack of funds. Paul Gallinger, left, a director of the fund, presents the cheque to cemetery treasurer Wayne McHarg. In the background is the columbarium in the Field of Honour section of the cemetery.

The Oromocto Pioneer Gardens Cemetery Field of Honour is reserved for veterans who have served in the military, police and fire service. The Field of Honour is governed by standards set by the Last Post Fund and OPGCCI. Two immediate family members may also be interred or inurned in the same plot or niche as the designated member.

When you apply for the interment rights for a plot or niche in the Field of Honour, we will ask you for your service number and/or other proof of service because we do verify your eligibility. For military veterans, if you present your Record of Service Identification (CF75) at the time of purchase your eligibility would be confirmed. It would be most appreciated if we could scan it for our records. Verification will take longer if we need to secure your eligibility by other means. For police and fire service members a similar request for proof of eligibility will be requested.
