How do I purchase a cemetery gravesite?

If you are interested in a cemetery gravesite, please call the cemetery, and we can set up an appointment to show you the areas that have available gravesites. 

Can more than one burial be done in one gravesite? 

Yes, one gravesite can accommodate a casket burial and a cremains burial.  Or, one gravesite can accommodate two cremains burials. 

What do I do if I need to schedule a burial? 

Usually, you will work with a Funeral Home.  The Funeral Home Director will contact the cemetery superintendent to schedule the burial. 

What paperwork do I need for burial in the cemetery? 

When a gravesite is sold, a deed is issued to the buyer confirming the price paid and the Section, Lot, and Gravesite(s) location. 

If a family member bought a gravesite several years ago, how can I find out if there are any available gravesites? 

If you have the deed, you can call the cemetery and give us the Section, Lot, and Gravesite number.  We can look that up in our records to see any available gravesites. 

Does a burial have to be underground?

No. The cemetery has a columbarium, which is a structure containing several niches.  A niche is a space used for the inurnment of cremains.  A niche plaque with the person’s name and dates of birth and death can be purchased to be put on the front of the niche.

What should I do if I know a family member purchased gravesites, but I don’t have the original deed? 

Once we research the gravesite(s) and determine that there are sites available, we can issue a replacement deed to the estate of the original purchaser.
