Trent Hills is home to 36 cemeteries, three of which are operated by the Municipality. Cemeteries in Trent Hills are a place of reflection and serenity; a place to remember loved ones. Cemeteries provide a beautiful green space to visit and honour those who rest. Trent Hills is currently undergoing a project in partnership with the 'Friends of the Trent Hills Cemetery' to beautify municipally operated cemeteries by installing memorial trees and benches.

Decoration Day - Decoration Day is an annual observance at many cemeteries during which families gather to clean up the graveyard, reconnect with family, and honor the memories of their ancestors. This tradition is generally strongest among rural communities. Decoration Day is most often associated with community-based cemeteries, some of which are connected with a local church. Some family cemeteries on old farmsteads also host a Decoration Day.
