Choosing a cemetery is an important decision for both you and your loved ones. Whether you require immediate assistance after a death, or wish to ease the burden on your family by planning ahead, it’s important to choose a cemetery provider who can offer complete support and meet your unique needs.
Below are a few questions designed to help guide you through the process of choosing a cemetery for you or your loved one.
Is the cemetery locally owned?
A locally owned cemetery is driven by a single goal: to provide compassionate, comprehensive services to grieving families during their time of need. Eastlawn Memorial Park is a locally owned and operated facility that is dedicated to providing guidance, support, and transparent pricing to each and every family.
Does the cemetery provide you and your family with personal attention?
The passing of a loved one is a difficult time, and it is important to choose a cemetery that can guide you through the steps of arranging a burial. During an initial visit to a cemetery, you should be able to tell how you and your family will be treated throughout the process.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you meet with cemetery providers:
Do the facilities appear clean and well-maintained?
A tour of the facility should demonstrate how the cemetery is managed. If you notice that the facilities are poorly kept or run-down, then it is clear that the details of day-to-day operations are not important…and your family’s needs might not be, either.
Is the cemetery fully licensed by the state?
Although regulations vary from state to state, all cemeteries are required to meet certain standards, which include full price disclosure and clear, approved language on all contracts. Cemeteries found to be in violation of these requirements will have their licenses revoked by the government. For you and your family’s protection, it is important to know that a cemetery is completely licensed by all state and federal regulations.
