Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  Does Crown Hill Cemetery have any spaces available? 

A:  Yes, we do. We still have almost 2000 available plots in our cemetery.  We have also converted many sections over to cremations burial plots.  By doing that, we can use what was once traditional burial plots into cremation burial plots. 

Q:  What is an Endowed Care Cemetery?  

A: An Endowed Care Cemetery sets aside 10% of every plot sold into an Endowment Trust Fund.  The fund is to ensure the long-term maintenance of the cemetery and can’t be accessed until the cemetery is finally at capacity.

Q:  What is an Urn Garden? 

A:  Urn Gardens are the sections specifically for Cremations Burials (AKA “inurnments”).  Its the same as a triditional burial plot except it is scaled down.  The plot, marker and the liner as all smaller since the urn is smaller.  We have Single and Companion Urn Gardens.  Urn Garden spaces are sold as a package that includes the plot, Opening & Closing, Burial Liner and a flat granite marker.

Q:  What is Pre-Arrangement? 

A: Pre-Arrangement means purchasing your cemetery needs ahead of time.  It allows you to freeze the cost of today’s prices, select the exact plot you want and even design the marker yourself.  It gives you control of the situation and lets you make choices on your time.  The greatest benefit of Pre-Need is protecting your loved ones from having to make these decisions and pay the expenses when they are grieving the loss of their loved one. 

Q:  Does Crown Hill Cemetery allow upright markers? 

A: Yes, we do! We allow uprights in almost every section.  Our cemetery has hundreds of upright monuments dating as far back as 1903.

Q:  What is the difference between a marker and a headstone? 

A:  Not much! The names are generally interchangeable terms for a memorial on a gravesite.  The term “headstone” used to be a more specific type of memorial but that has changed over time.
