Plan Ahead to Ensure Your Wishes are Fulfilled
Buy a site, for which you receive a deed:
You may arrange a visit to select a site or have our staff select one for you.
Do not put your deed in a security box - these are often overlooked until after the burial.
Consider keeping the deed and a clear, simple note about your wishes with other important items like your birth certificate, other deeds, or living will.
Find a funeral director who respects your wishes:
Talk with several and see how they respond.
Contact a local or regional funeral consumers alliance for funeral directors in your area. Start at www.funerals.org.
Explain your plans to family and friends:
Show your loved ones your deed and explanation of your wishes and let them know where you will keep it.
If you relocate or rearrange your home, be sure to update your loved ones of the deed's new location.
