Choosing A Cemetary Plot

A checklist of issues to consider when your loved one is choosing a cemetery plot.

Standard Cemetery Fees Include:

  • The plot itself
  • The opening and closing of the grave
  • An outer burial container
  • A marker or headstone
  • A copy of the burial permit

Other Considerations:

  • Ask about any relationships the cemetery has with a funeral home—this may allow for a fixed or discounted transportation fee between the two.
  • Ask about the projected room for growth in a cemetery.
  • Early purchase of the plot will make it less expensive.
  • Early purchase of the plot will assure that your loved one can be buried near a spouse, relative, or friend.
  • Your loved one can purchase a plot through the cemetery, cemetery property re-sales brokers, or ads in the newspaper.
