Interment rights are an important consideration when making the final arrangements for a loved one. Many people believe that purchasing the right of interment is the same as purchasing the land itself. However, this is a misconception. What you are purchasing when you purchase cemetery property is the right to be interred on or in that piece of property.
The cemetery property that you will need will depend on the burial services that you have chosen. A traditional burial will be more expensive and will require more property than a cremation service. However, even if you or your loved one has decided on cremation, you may still want to consider purchasing a sort of cemetery property to ensure a permanent resting place for the ashes. There are multiple fixtures in which cremated remains are often placed. A columbarium is located within a mausoleum or chapel. These structures are constructed of multiple niches that are designed specifically to hold urns. Cremation gardens are dedicated sections of a cemetery that are designed for the burial of cremated remains. Other solutions can be implemented to provide the best final resting place for the ashes of your loved one. Our experts are capable of guiding you through the process of choosing the best location, whether you intend to scatter or find a permanent resting place for the ashes.
If you are pre-planning funeral services, you may wish to consider purchasing your cemetery property in advance. Not only will this prevent the financial burden from falling to your loved ones, but it will also ensure that you are able to be buried in the place of your choosing. Many people choose to purchase cemetery property long before it is necessary to guarantee that they are buried near their loved ones.
