Catholic Cemeteries has graves in different sections of our cemeteries specifically sized to accommodate cremated remains. When a cremation grave is sold, ownership of the land remains with the Catholic Cemeteries. The purchaser, through the Burial Rights Agreement, is only given an exclusive and permanent right of use of the grave for the burial of cremated human remains.
The type of memorial allowed on a cremation grave determines the decoration and planting rules that apply to that specific grave. Regardless of the type of memorial privilege allowed, the actual monument or marker is not included in the purchase price of the grave space. Below are the different categories of cremation graves available.
