Choosing a Cemetery
If a family member has passed away and is to be buried in a cemetery, the very first thing to do is to determine the location. It isn’t uncommon for people to purchase a cemetery plot while they are alive. In this case, you wouldn’t have to choose a location. However, if the person hadn’t chosen a cemetery plot or purchased one, it would be your responsibility to consider where your loved one would prefer to have been buried.
More often than not, people prefer to be buried in the area they lived in, while others choose the location they grew up/were born in. The other aspects to consider is the distance of the cemetery from where immediate family members reside and choose a cemetery that would be easily accessible.
