We've got answers to some of your pressing questions about buying a plot.
Absolutely! As long as you or your spouse have been honorable or medically discharged from the U.S. military, you are BOTH eligible for free burial in a national cemetery, regardless of whether or not the veteran served during a time of war. This free burial includes the plot, opening and closing, grave liner, bronze or granite government headstone, a burial flag, and Presidential Memorial Certificate. Free burial or cremation niche placement is also available for those choosing cremation. For more information regarding veteran burial benefits, visit http://www.cem.va.gov/burial_benefits/.
Exciting! You have made a great decision to buy from a private party, rather than a cemetery. This decision will likely save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Now you need to confirm that the seller owns the cemetery property. This tactic is particularly important before you make an exchange or deposit on the cemetery property. You will also want to be sure the seller has the right to sell the property.In many cases, when the owner is selling cemetery property, the seller has inherited the property from a relative. There may be other family members who have a share in the ownership. You must ensure the cemetery property is free and clear to be transferred. By asking the cemetery personnel to look into it first, you avoid purchasing the plots, niche, or crypt and then having an issue trying to get it transferred. Ideally, the seller will have done their due diligence before posting the ad and will have all their affairs in order.
