For all burials
Besides negotiating with a funeral home, the primary task for someone anticipating a burial is to resolve any questions of lot ownership. New changes to the New Hampshire statues are quite specific, and a prudent cemetery trustee must require a statement of ownership. We do.
At least three days before the interment the Cemetery Trustees must have
- Payment as a check payable to Green Lawn Cemetery and an
- Interment Order. You can expect assistance in the specification of the exact grave location.
Opening and closing the grave will be done by a contractor of the Trustees.
Full body burials
These are almost always managed by a funeral home, but New Hampshire law does not mandate professional involvment. A Trustee might observe, but he will not directly assist.
A concrete vault is required, but on request it can be installed upside down without a cover.
These are intrinsically free of governmental regulation, but where you might want to put them is apt to have regulations about such disposition. Green Lawn Cemetery has regulations governing disposition within its boundaries.
Burial of cremation remains in Green Lawn requires a full grave (hence an Interment Order,) and the supervision of a Trustee or designee. A cremation vault is required.
