Sumner City Cemetery offers many options to best fit your needs. Some arrangements can be made in advance to reserve your first choice while others need to be made when the need arises. The information below is intended to give you an idea of the kinds of services offered, but nothing matches visiting the cemetery in person and reviewing options.
STEP 1–Reserving a space for cremains
You may reserve a space well in advance in order to secure your site at today’s prices, or you may purchase space as needed. There are a variety of space options available for either a traditional burial (click here for options) or the repose of cremains, or ashes from a cremation (listed below).

Please note: these options do not include the process of cremation. You would want to meet with a funeral home for those arrangements. Sumner City Cemetery offers a wide range of places for the repose of cremains, but we do not offer an option for the scattering of ashes on our grounds.
This option offers single plots of land in order to place cremains in the ground and takes a 16″ x 8″ granite marker. This space does not allow for extended land use, so couples would each need a space.
People choose this option because they prefer cremation and repose in a garden setting.
Companion Urn Garden $3200
This option offers the space and a vault for two individuals’ cremains. It includes a floral vase and blank marker in either absolute black, georgia grey or sentinal red. Other marker colors may be selected for the additional cost. Because this option already accommodates two individuals, extended land use is not an option for this section.
People choose this option because they like the setting, and unlike the other options, everything is included. Unless you choose to upgrade your granite, most costs are taken care of up-front.
This option offers the comfort of an indoor setting for one urn plus the ability to customize the space.

Extended Niche Use 30% of niche price
