TRADITIONAL BURIAL

If you choose a burial site, how many graves are included? The number can vary, of course, depending on the space you might need. But ordinarily, one single grave site can accommodate two full-casket burials. Larger family burial sites are available to accommodate a greater number. Two sets of cremated remains can be substituted for the space taken by a full casket. You should determine whether a family lot is appropriate by considering whether children are nearby, for instance, and whether it’s important to them to share a family burial site.

What advantages are offered by choosing a family burial site in advance? The advantages are both logistical and economic. In the first instance, with a family site there is no question or indecision at the time of burial. When the site has been pre-chosen and pre-purchased, there is no conflict. Everyone knows where the burial site is located and that it is immediately available. A family site purchased on a pre-need basis saves money, too. Inflation and supply and demand will certainly affect cemetery costs, just like everything else. What you see today, especially if there are several graves involved, will almost certainly be less expensive now than in the future.

You’ll find a trained, understanding cemetery staff member who will be happy to advise and assist you on the appropriate setting and number of burial sites—explaining all the options, so that you will be comfortable and at peace with your choice.

MONUMENTS, MARKERS & BENCHES

Upright headstones, called “monuments,” are commonly used to both identify and memorialize the individual(s)buried within particular ground lots on a cemetery's grounds. Headstones that are flat against the ground are called “markers.” In some cemeteries, or sections of cemeteries, only flat markers are used in an effort to preserve the natural appearance of the landscape. Other grave identifiers include family monuments and memorial benches.
