Things to Consider When Choosing a Burial Plot

Planning for end of life is an important task, although it may seem a bit morbid. It’s inevitable that everyone is going to die and it’s best to have your wishes stated. An estate planning attorney in Camden County, Missouri can help ensure your wishes are properly documented. One of the decisions you will need to make is where to be buried. If you would prefer a traditional burial in a plot, you may want to go ahead and choose your place. There are a few factors you should consider when selecting a burial plot and O’Donnell Law Center is here to help you think about your options.

Plot Location

There are many location options when it comes to choosing your burial plot. Do you want to be laid to rest in your hometown, with your family, in your favorite vacation spot? Once you’ve decided on a physical location, you can start looking at the different cemetery options available in that specific location. 

Size of Plot

There are different plot sizes available at most cemeteries. Think about the needs of you and your family, in the future. There are single plots, double plots, and family size plots to choose from, in most cases. Give this some thought as you decide on the location of the plot, as the cemetery will need to know this information as you make your purchase. 

Burial Marker

A monument marker is traditionally associated with cemeteries, and there are many different options available. Flush with the ground, a marble headstone, or even a monument is often an option, depending on the cemetery you choose. This decision can be helpful to make first, followed by your choice of cemetery and plot that can accommodate your choice for marker. It can also relieve your family of having to make a number of decisions during a difficult and stressful time immediately following their loss. 

Cost of Plot

Different cemeteries, locations, and sizes can impact the cost of the plot you choose. This may be a consideration in the final decision making process for your estate planning needs. Don’t forget to ask about the opening and closing cost of the burial plot. That may be a factor in your decision making process as well.
