What services do cemeteries offer?

A cemetery will manage many of the tasks surrounding burial or interment, as well as other long-term tasks related to the care and maintenance of burial sites. These tasks may include:
  • Preparing the burial site
  • Placing the body in the grave or mausoleum crypt, or placing the cremated remains in the columbarium niche
  • Closing the grave, mausoleum crypt or columbarium niche
  • Installing a headstone or grave marker
In addition, cemeteries will obtain the necessary licenses to bury the body and will keep the burial records. After the burial, the cemetery will maintain the gravesite, including maintaining any grass and landscaping around the grave.
