Lot Selection

How to Choose a Lot

The best way to choose a lot is to consider the eventual needs of your family.  Decide who you would want included on the lot and, if possible, what type of burial they would prefer (“traditional” full body or cremation).  It is important to think this through at the time of purchase before adjacent spaces are purchased by others, making them unavailable to your family.

Our LOT SPACES provide burial-type flexibility and allow for monuments and flush markers as indicated.

In-Ground Spaces for “Traditional” (full body) Burial

If you choose “traditional” full body interment (burial) you will need a full-size space for interment. We offer:

  • Single Spaces
  • Side-by-Side Spaces
  • Front and Rear Spaces
  • Family Plots of 10 graves or more at 30% Discount

Choosing Memorials for Your Lot

The plot you choose will determine the type of memorials that can be placed on your lot.

Try to picture how you would want the lot to ultimately look.  Do you visualize an upright monument with everyone’s name on it?  Flush markers on each grave?  A bench instead of an upright monument?  Will you be entitled to a Veterans’ Standard Government Marker? Are there seasonal flowers growing in front of the monument?  Will there be anyone willing to keep up floral memorial displays or do you want the cemetery to handle this for you perpetually?  Would the lot be enhanced with a particular small evergreen, ornamental shrub or tree planted near your lot?    Whatever you picture will also help determine the lot that you choose.

For all in-ground spaces (with the exception of single cremains and infant only spaces which allow flush markers only)  you are allowed to add:

  • An upright monument or bench at the rear of your lot
  • Flush markers on each grave at the front of your lot
  • In-ground planters for memorial floral displays in front of your monument

Above-ground niches includes the embossing/engravings of the Names and Dates of the individuals who will be inurned.
