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. A number of cremated ashes may be interred in a grave.
