We are proud to now offer online burial information lookup. This is a fantastic resource for genealogy enthusiasts, residents, and anyone looking for available burial spaces. Simply view the Burial Information spreadsheet to the right and search the alphabetical listings for the name and corresponding burial location information that you are looking for. You can then cross-reference the plot location on that document with the maps provided to pinpoint exact location information. Additionally, you may also use the maps to view open burial spaces (noted in green).
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.
