I Own a Cemetery Plot in a Privately Owned Cemetery, Do I Have to use Their Funeral Home?
At Ocean County Cremation Service, many of our clients have this question for us. The simple answer is “no.” If you own a cemetery plot in a privately owned cemetery, you are not obliged to use their funeral home for the service. You have the flexibility to use a funeral home you prefer, no matter where your cemetery and the plot are located.
Many private cemeteries are part of corporate entities, and most of them have their own funeral homes. If the funeral director feels that the service arrangements are not in place, they may recommend that you opt for their services. Although this may be a convenient choice for you, you should compare the services offered by other funeral homes in the area. Sometimes, families are short on time and opt for services from the funeral home connected to the privately-owned cemetery where they have a cemetery plot.
