-- Choosing Cemetery Evaluating Your Options
The job of burying a loved one is not a simple thing. The emotional suffering when combined with the legal requirements and the vast array of options available in the field would definitely confuse you. However, an awareness of the different types of cemeteries you can choose at present is sure to make things a lot easier. Here is a short review of some of them.
Cemeteries are classified into two main categories; traditional ones and memorial parks.
Traditional cemeteries are the burial places used by generations of people living in an area. They would have upright monuments, tombs and other sculptures designed to immortalize those taking rest there. A person with an affinity towards history would love to visit traditional cemeteries. They have a lot to talk; most of them are there for, may be centuries.
Memorial parks are relatively new when compared to their traditional counterparts. You may not be able to see tombs here. These generally feature gardens and bronze sculptures to remember the people taking rest in these graveyards. The sculptures are designed in such a way as to add up to the beauty of the area. Lawns, exotic gardens and fountains are just a few of the attractions decorating these places.
Most of the renowned cemeteries would have two sections; the ones with upright monuments and those with gardens. Individuals, corporations and non-profit organizations operate cemeteries. You just have to go for the affordable option available.
Given below are the additional options available for you.
1. Church graveyards
These are the first known public cemeteries. Reports say that in Europe, aristocrats were buried under the stone floor of the church buildings. Church cemeteries are generally classified as traditional cemeteries with a rich history.
2. Family-owned burial plots
These are mostly seen in the Southern States. In the past, families owned large plots of land in cemeteries. They allowed their neighbors and relatives to bury their loved ones in these plots.
3. Customary cemetery
You can find these kinds of cemeteries in rural areas. The great thing about them is that you cannot pin-point an owner for any of these. People simply bury their dead. When a family buries their loved one in a plot, the survivors take care of that plot. The law forbids these kinds of burial grounds. Still, they are allowed to operate.
4. Lodge cemeteries
These as the name suggest are owned and operated by private entities like clubs. And, they are there to bury the members belonging to that particular organization. You may get permission to bury your loved ones here. Most of them are there to reduce the cost of burying. Being the member of a group also reduced the cost of insurance protection for death.
5. Ethnic burial places
These like lodge cemeteries are owned by organizations or individuals. But, they are there to bury the dead belonging to a specified group or religious sect.
