Return and Exchange Policy

Graves, crypts and niches returned by the lot owner. A lot owner can request the return of unused graves, crypts and niches. The cemetery management will determine if the graves, crypts or niches can be re-sold and, therefore if the return is accepted. For those graves, crypts and niches that can be returned, the lot owner will receive 100% of the amount paid (if the graves, crypts and niches can be re-sold with the same privilege as they were originally purchased) or 25% of the current re-sell price, whichever is higher, minus the current administrative fee.

Graves, crypts and niches retuned by the spouse and/or the children of the lot owner. The spouse and/or all of the children of the lot owner can request the return of any unused graves, crypts and niches when the lot owner is deceased. All of them must be in agreement and there can be no burial, entombment, or inurnment assignments. The cemetery management will determine if the graves, crypts or niches can be re-sold and, therefore, if the return is accepted. The spouse and/or all of the children of the lot owner will have to sign and file an affidavit with the cemetery office stating that there are no other children of the lot owner and that all of them are in agreement to return the graves, crypts or niches. If one of the children of the lot owner is deceased, then all of his/her children (i.e., grandchildren of the lot owner) will also have to sign the affidavit. When a child of the lot owner signs an affidavit, he/she also signs for his/her children. The spouse and/or the children of the low owner will receive 100% of the amount paid (if the graves, crypts, or niches can be re-sold with the same privilege as they were originally purchased) or 25% of the current re-sell price, whichever is higher, minus the current administrative fee.

Upgrade by the lot owner. Subject to the approval of the cemetery management, a lot owner can return any unused graves, crypts or niches for a full credit of the current price (if the graves, crypts or niches can be re-sold with the same privilege as they were originally purchased) when applied towards the purchase of other graves, crypts or niches in the cemetery of the same or greater value. The current administrative fee will apply.

Upgrade by the spouse and/or the children of the lot owner: Subject to the approval of the cemetery management, and only in those cases when the lot owner is deceased, the spouse and/or all of the children of the lot owner can request the return of any unused graves, crypts or niches for a full credit of the current price (if the graves, crypts or niches can be re-sold with the same privilege as they were purchased) when applied towards the purchase of other graves, crypts or niches of equal or greater value. The current administrative fee will apply. The spouse and/or all of the children of the lot owner must be in agreement and there can be no burial, entombment, or inurnment assignments.
