Frequently Asked Questions About Our Single Plots for Ground Burials

How many people can be buried in each plot?
Each single burial plot accommodates 2 interments.

Can cremated remains be interred in a single burial plot?
Yes.

Does the cemetery provide the cemetery vault (lined and sealed outer receptacle that houses the casket) required for the grave?
No. Those are typically purchased directly from the funeral parlor.

Is maintenance of the plot included in the purchase price?
Yes, a perpetual care fund is supported by proceeds from each sale. The principal of this endowment can never be violated based on the laws of New York State.

Is there a height restriction for headstones?
Yes, new plots are restricted to headstones no higher than 8 inches, to preserve the park-like setting. There is some limited space available in the older area that allows for upright monuments, as that provision is grandfathered in that section of the cemetery.

No, that practice is prohibited by New York State Cemetery Laws.
