Selecting a Cemetery Plot

In the brief period between death and burial, cemetery plots and graves are sometimes purchased by a family without careful thought and often without a personal visit to the cemetery and later found to be inadequate or undesirable. It is highly recommended that cemetery plots be purchased far ahead of need.

Quite often persons buying cemetery plots in haste will not buy enough graves, or they will purchase many more than the family will ever utilize in future years. To avoid mistakes and to meet the present and future needs of your family, the utmost consideration should be given this decision.

When purchasing a cemetery plot, one should ascertain whether the cemetery meets the requirements of the family’s religion.

One should also determine just what restrictions, if any, the cemetery might enforce in regard to the kind of outside burial vault to be used and the type of monument or memorial to be erected.

Buying a cemetery plot for investment purposes is considered an unwise practice. The majority of all cemeteries retain the right to repurchase a plot at the original purchase price. For this reason, even though the lot may have increased in value, there is rarely a profit realized by the purchaser.

Perpetual care on a cemetery plot is more often than not included in the purchase price.
