Do I have to buy from the cemetery?

Posted by Linda

Are we required to purchase from the cemetery? The answer is no!  They will still maintain the property even if you don’t. Here are the facts:

  1. Every cemetery charges an installation fee which covers  installing the stone or pouring the foundation for a stone.  If it is a monument or a slant on a base, usually the monument dealer does the installation of the stones but not the cement or gravel foundation.
  2. Who maintains the property?  The CEMETERY who is charging tor the fee of the foundation.  Every cemetery has rules and regulations. So the next time you are purchasing a memorial, ask yourself if you can save your family some money and go direct to the local monument dealer and work with them.  image
