Q. How many burials will a new single family grave accommodate?
A. Most new graves will accommodate three adult burials.

Q. How soon after the burial can a Monument be erected?
A. Most cemeteries will have the necessary foundations in place (prior to a burial) to support the headstone. Thus, a headstone may be ordered immediately.

Q. If an existing family grave cannot accommodate any further adult burials, can it still be used?
A. Yes.  Any number of cremated ashes may be interred in a grave.
