STEP 2–Burial Costs

Although you may reserve your space (Step 1) well in advance, once you need a space, there are other costs associated with an interment.

Liner or Vault
Price varies
The Cemetery requires you to have a liner or vault for any in-ground interment as it keeps the ground from sinking and settling over the site.  You can install either one and do not need both.  Prices and options vary widely, so contact us to review your options.

Open/Close costs
These are costs associated with when the cemetery staff need to open and close the site for interment.  Adult liner $850
Vault install $200
Lawn Crypt $900 per burial
Baby Land $250
Cremains in garden $425
Niche $375
Urn/Urn Vault install $100
Crypts $600-675

Markers
Price varies
Whether raised or flush, markers offer a wide range of granite colors, engravings and sizes.  Contact us to review your options.  You’ll likely want to schedule an appointment to see the various options in person at the cemetery office.  Markers may be purchased and placed after a service.
