Single Burial Plot Or Individual Plot
If you are in the market for a burial plot and don’t want to spend too much money, single space burial plots might be a good option. They are simple, affordable and hassle-free – perfect for those who only have one grave to fill up. However, they can be quite small so make sure that you choose the right type of plot if you’re planning on burying more than one person. Single space cremation plots also offer simplicity and affordability but there is no funeral service or memorial ceremony involved.
Companion Plots or Side by Side
Two side-by-side plots are often the most popular option because they can accommodate up to 8 graves. Make sure you know about any restrictions or conditions that may apply before buying a burial plot – some cemeteries do not allow grave shifting or memorialization of pets on their plots. If you need more space than what is offered by a standard plot, consider buying a burial plot with extra room on either side.
Remember to have your property surveyed to ensure compatibility before making a purchase.
Mini plots are perfect for 2-5 people and regular plots are good for 6 or more. If you are looking for a gravesite that is truly unique and expresses your personality, then a family burial plot is the perfect choice for you!
Plots for Cremated Remains
When planning to bury the cremated remains of a loved one, there are a few things you need to consider. You can choose from burial plots in cemeteries or gravestone parks, depending on your preferences and needs. A grave liner is another option that can help protect the ground beneath the remains while they’re resting in peace.
Lawn crypts are a popular burial plot option for many people as they are not only affordable, but also provide the convenience of being buried near family and loved ones. Garden crypts offer an extra-large area for graves, so if this is important to you then head to your local cemetery and ask about plots and the cost before making your choice. You can also choose a lawn crypt if you want more space than a garden crypt provides.
A mausoleum crypt is usually the most expensive type of plot and also has the widest range of sizes – perfect if you are looking for a large space. Some are large enough for several caskets and graves, while others are suitable for just one family member or friend with a choice of an underground grave or above ground.
There is a Veteran’s Pre-need Program that can help you with this process and some cemeteries also offer further discounts or offers and take care of many funeral arrangements such as funeral services and gravesite headstones etc.
Plots for Green Burials
If you are thinking of having a green burial, then choose a cemetery plot that is mixed with compost. This will help reduce the environmental impact of burial in general. Always consult with the cemetery about their specific requirements, as some cemeteries may require grave markers or headstones made from environmentally-friendly materials.
Pre-Owned Burial Plots
Pre-owned cemeteries are a great option for those looking to get their burial plot without any hassles. To purchase an already dug grave, you can choose to go through the cemetery or look for suppliers online.
