Cemetery Property Completes Your Plan
In addition to funeral services and the choice of burial or cremation, cemetery property, or “interment rights,” is another consideration when you’re making final arrangements, either for yourself in advance, or for a loved one.
A common misconception that people often have when they purchase the right of interment in a cemetery is that they have purchased the land itself, when in fact what they have really purchased is the right to be interred (also referred to as buried, entombed, enniched or placed) on or in that particular piece of property.
The caring professionals at Palm cemeteries will gladly give you a tour of our cemetery properties so you can select the type and location of cemetery property that is right for you and your loved ones. Regardless of whether your choice is burial or cremation, permanent memorialization of your life and legacy is a lasting heritage for your descendants.
Palm cemeteries allow both upright headstones, called “monuments,” and headstones that are flat against the ground, called “markers,” to be used with ground burials. In some sections of our cemeteries, only flat markers are used to preserve the natural appearance of the landscape.
Many people overlook the importance of cemetery property for those who choose cremation, but permanent placement, or “final disposition,” of cremated remains is an important part of final arrangements. At Palm cemeteries, many of our traditional burial properties also can accommodate cremated remains. Click here to read more about cremation property options.
