Purchasing a Burial Space

Both Hope and Virgo Cemeteries currently have burial plots available. To purchase a burial plot, please contact the Clerk’s Office to schedule a time to review open plots and locations. 

All burial spaces are purchased through the Township Clerk’s Office. The purchase of a burial space grants a right of burial only – it does not convey any other title to the lot or burial space sold. Each burial space is designed for one burial, however, exceptions may be made for cremations. 

Please call 269.375.1591 to contact the Clerk’s Office and schedule a time to review available burial spaces.

How many burials is each burial site designed for?

What does the cost of a burial site cover?

The purchase of a burial site grants a right of burial only and does not convey any other title to the lot or burial space sold. Additional fees for grave openings will apply.

Markers must be of stone or other equally durable composition and must be placed at the head of the burial site with no more than one marker per burial site.

Am I allowed to plant any trees/shrubs/etc. at a grave site?

The Township will be responsible for the placement of all trees and shrubs and no individual planting of trees, shrubs, rosebushes, etc. shall be permitted.
