Layton's body was later cremated and his ashes were spread in three different locations:

  • Wyman United Church cemetery in Hudson, Que., where his father and maternal grandparents are buried.
  • Toronto Island, where he and Chow were married.
  • St. James' Cemetery in Toronto.

At the Quebec and Toronto Island locations, his ashes were spread where a memorial tree is planted.
