Why a Cemetery?The idea of honoring our loved ones at their permanent resting place is a time-honored tradition. Whether it was the ancient Egyptians constructing the pyramids, the erection of a grand private mausoleum, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery, or a simple burial space with a marker, the idea of a dignified burial and remembering our deceased loved ones is an important tradition. We care for these places and visit them to remember and feel connected to this special person in our lives. A cemetery provides a peaceful environment for our loved ones to rest and for us to honor their memory.
Cemetery Property OptionsMany of Charlotte’s local cemeteries offer many dignified options for your family. These options can range from personal taste, beliefs, or budget. You can select burial spaces that range from individual plots for one person to multiple plots for many members of your family. These options, however, will depend on the cemetery that is chosen. We recommend that families check directly with their cemetery of choice to see available options. We also recommend seeking information on the following: maintenance practices (how much of your cost is going to an ongoing fund), relevant rules regarding flower placement, monuments, markers, and decorations.
Our caskets are crafted from wood and metal. Casket costs are influenced by the type of wood and metal used during construction along with the type of material used on the interior.
Interior fabric on the casket that is chosen can range from a simple crepe to a more luxurious velvet. Depending on the casket of choice, additional protection may be included to withstand the entrance of outside elements.
