Ground Burial

How to Choose the Right Spot for a Ground Burial

Life has a way of giving us many wonders. Even after death, there are still ways a family member or close friend can help make a burial a memorable one for others to remember forever. Ground burials are not only traditional, but are now offered with more comfort and flexibility in mind. It is more than just a designated space, but a place your loved ones will reserve for decades to come. With the help of pre-need planning, choosing the right spot for a ground burial ahead of time is made easy. 

Pick a location/section

In-ground burials are typically located in the cemetery’s common grounds. Mobile Memorial Gardens offers more than your typical cemetery options by allowing you to choose from different locations. For example, you can reserve a space in the shade surrounding the beautiful majestic oak trees. Or, face the nearby Founder’s lake, a view you do not want to pass. You can also choose from numerous gardens by taking a look at the garden map for more details. 

Make pre-arrangements for a better guarantee

Though the cemetery offers unique locations for ground burial, they are quite popular and can fill up faster than other spots. To ensure you will receive what you request, it is important to make pre-arrangements for a better guarantee. Availability will vary, but it is best to start early to get the process started. Making pre-arrangements helps many families with having to face financial hardships and heartache. Once you start working on your Personal Planning Organizer, you can feel safe knowing you will grant any wishes you or your loved one have. 

Look at pricing 

Like any type of burial, it will require paying a price. Luckily, in-ground burial is an affordable option that individuals can make through the pre-need planning program. One of our many family service counselors will also help guide you through the process and talk about prices and budgeting. There are a few ways to save money such as purchasing a double depth interment versus a side-by-side plot. A double depth interment will ultimately work as a single plot while saving space and material from purchasing an additional burial container. The benefits of this option include having loved ones together, making it more convenient and overall bringing a sense of closeness. 

Envision more 

The grieving process of a loved one is never easy, which is why we encourage you to envision more. Choosing the right spot for ground burial should feel and look right to you. Materials like marble features add a timeless design to grave markers, making your loved one’s plot stand out. Perpetual care is also included when making pre-arrangements to keep the utmost maintenance.
