Burial costs can be a very difficult thing to compare.
Selecting a burial plot is something most people don’t do very often, much like securing a mortgage. With little home-buying experience, it’s hard to know what one bank’s closing costs include vs. another’s and what questions to ask. And at closing you sometimes encounter an unpleasant surprise—extra fees that you never expected.
The same can be true for burial costs. Some cemeteries will advertise appealing prices, only to reveal upon closer inspection that they only include the cost of interment—the space you secure in a cemetery. But there might still be document fees, processing fees, the cost of memorialization (a grave marker, a cremation urn, etc.) and the cost of perpetual care—the mowing, maintenance and the like.
It’s a lot to think about, typically at a very difficult time full of urgent decisions.
But at Seven Stones, we want to make things as simple as possible. So we provide a clear picture of your burial costs right from the start. Our pricing is inclusive of interment right, memorial, QR medallion and perpetual care. Whatever your budget and your wishes, you can rest easy knowing that the costs you see are accurate and complete.
Of course we highly recommend preplanning. This allows you the time and opportunity to visit cemeteries, investigate pricing and ask questions about perpetual care. We’ve listed some helpful points for you to consider when choosing a cemetery. It’s the best way to secure the site and memorial you want at the best possible price.
But whether you’re planning ahead or seeking solutions at the time of need, it’s important to look closely at burial costs. Ask questions about what’s included so that you know you’re comparing apples to apples. Getting a mortgage can be a stressful situation, but planning a funeral and burial can be even more difficult. Be sure you’re getting all of the information you need to make a decision from experts prepared to help.
Seven Stones pricing is very competitive, and financing is available. We encourage you to come in and discover just how affordable burial costs in this beautiful cemetery can be.
