The passing of a loved one is an emotional and stressful time for all concerned. No one wants to think of money at a time such as this but it is unfortunately often necessary from a practical viewpoint. Certain things have to be paid for before the cemetery service can even begin. For example, the full purchase price of the interment rights (grave lot, niche, etc) and possibly the actual interment or cremation fee and any additional services (snow removal, etc). Burial markers cannot be installed until all interment costs have been paid in full.
Pre-planning your cemetery arrangements has many benefits for yourself and your family. For instance by pre-planning you get to choose exactly where your final resting place will be (over near a particular tree, a sunny location, facing west, etc.). Pre-planning also provides your survivors and executor with a clear idea of your desires in this regard. Pre-planning also allows you ample time to make an informed decision about services such as cremation or traditional in ground burial. With pre-planning you are also protected from rising cemetery costs, thus relieving your family of any sudden financial burden upon your death.
At Elmwood we offer numerous options for the deceased remains such as traditional full interment (casket), cremation interment (urn in ground), inurnment (urn in group niche columbarium or private niche columbarium). Other options may be available as desired. Contact the manager for further details.
