How to Select a Cemetery

Here are some tips to help you obtain as much information as possible about the facilities at which you are considering purchasing memorial property:

  1. Visit the location and meet the staff.
    Pay attention to how friendly and knowledgeable the staff members are, and how willingly they provide information.
  2. Check out the physical condition of the grounds, roads and buildings.
    Inspect the outer edges of the cemetery. If those areas are taken care of, you can be assured that the entire area will be well maintained.
  3. Consider other available conveniences.
    Research what arrangements can be made at the cemetery, including burial, mausoleum or cremation memorialization and flowers.
  4. Consider past experiences.
    Evaluate the experiences that you or your friends have had with various cemeteries and funeral homes. You can also get information through the local Department of Consumer Affairs.
