Cemetery Statistics & Purchasing a Plot

Home / Cemetery Statistics & Purchasing a Plot
FROM THE CEMETERY POLICY MANUAL

Only permissive burial rights are sold. The cemetery retains title to the cemetery property. A maximum of twelve (12) gravesites can be purchased per household who are residents of the taxing district. Non-resident households may elect to purchase a maximum of four (4) gravesites per household. Proof of current residency is the responsibility of the applicant. A certificate of burial rights or deed will be issued for each plot, with an associated name (not just the purchaser), after fees are paid in full. Burial plot or Gravesite Certificates do NOT convey title to the land, ONLY the right for burial of the named individual in said plot or gravesite; title remains with the cemetery. Any unauthorized or improper transactions concerning issued Certificates may render them null and void. (Reference: Cemetery Policy Manual, page 8).

TOTAL PLOTS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE: 468
This number is assumed to be generally accurate, within 2% margin of error.  The cemetery uses two main statistics: the number of plots available for interment and number of plots available for purchase, in planning for the future needs of the cemetery district.  Using statistical analysis, from actual cemetery capacity given it’s current size, combined with historical burial and purchase trends, we hope to be able to accurately estimate future needs for the cemetery.  Check back often for updates regarding cemetery statistics. 

TOTAL CEMETERY PLOTS: 6874
This number is assumed to be accurate within 15%.  It’s derived from how many plots should be, given accurate book keeping and surveying practices.  In the early years of the cemetery’s history, book keeping and surveying was mediocre, at best; as a result not all plots have been utilized in the most efficient way possible.  As the cemetery continues to invest time and effort in updating and converting our mapping system to a digital format, this number will become more accurate, and reflect the actual number of plots in the cemetery. 

TOTAL PURCHASED PLOTS: 6406
93% of the plots, in the current use sections,  have been purchased.
