Annual Memorial Service Notice

For the past several years, Bayview Cemetery and Bay Gardens Funeral Home have held an annual Memorial Service in June, which typically coincided with Father's Day weekend. We are beginning to field inquiries about the service this year and regret to inform you that it will not take place in 2016. The management team would like to take an opportunity to examine our eventstrategy for 2016-2017 and will determine if the Memorial Service is suitably placed in the calendar. We thank our patrons and the families who have attended in the past and will keep you informed about any future event.


Thank you on behalf of Bay Gardens and Bayview Cemetery
