There has been a long-standing assumption, especially in the U.S., that cemeteries are depressing or creepy and that, if you are interested in cemeteries, you have some sort of morbid fascination with death. But that attitude is changing by the increasing number of amateur genealogists seeking their families' roots. The cemetery revival is in full swing ... making them, once again, seen as places of beauty, celebration and remembrance. Today, if you tell someone you're interested in cemeteries they are likely to tell you about their aunt, best friend or boss who loves cemeteries, too.

This guide will help explain a little bit about cemeteries and their history ... but also the importance of having a permanent resting place for yourself or a loved one, but will also cover many of the terms used when discussing cemetery property. It also covers the large number of cemetery options that exist ... from public cemeteries to veteran cemeteries and everything in between.

As with any decision, it is important to know all the facts and to explore all the possiblities ... purchasing cemetery property is no different. We strive to provide families with useful information that will help them whether they need cemetery property for pre-planning or for immediate need.

The guide is yours, as a gift from us—and we hope it will be useful.
