The three largest expenditures a family has in a lifetime are a house, car, and burial expense.
Choosing your cemetery property and memorial/marker are important decisions every family must make. Preplanning your funeral is as common as buying life insurance or making out a will. It’s just a part of being prepared. Now more than ever, people are choosing to make their cemetery prearrangements. Consider the benefits of preplanning:
- You are able to make comfortable choices without the pressure of being in a crisis situation.
- You relieve your family from the emotional burden of making decisions at the time of need.
- You make better financial decisions when family members aren’t feeling emotions of grief or guilt.
- You avoid conflicts between family members by spelling out your wishes on paper.
- You lock in funeral costs at today’s prices.
Once you’ve chosen Traditional Ground Burial, there are two decisions to make at your cemetery.
1. Land: A cemetery lot in which the vault and casket are placed.
- How many burial sites will your family need?
- What section of the cemetery do you wish to choose in?
- Do you wish to get near a relative or friend?
- What are your marker preferences? (Some sections have marker restrictions)
- Land prices at Linwood Cemetery range from $800.00 per space to $5,001.00 per space
Linwood Cemetery offers a wide variety of bronze or granite memorials. If you purchase a cast bronze or granite memorial through our office, you will receive the highest value, as we use the finest materials and craft for each memorial.
There are several options to consider when designing your memorial such as: style/shape, granite color (gray, black, blue, green, brown, red, and pink), size, vases, peace lights and laser and color etchings, etc.
Please see the Memorials/Markers section of this web-site for more information on Selection and Custom Designing your memorial/marker.
The selection of a final resting-place is a sacred duty that sooner or later must be fulfilled. It’s much better to meet this inevitable obligation now while members of your family are together than postpone it until the confused, lonely hour of bereavement. Please contact our office today to schedule an appointment to discuss your prearrangements.
