Planning Ahead

No one wants to think about his or her death. Purchasing cemetery space is one more provision you can make for a time when your family must go on without you. By Prearranging you will relieve your family of difficult decisions and protect your loved ones from having to make difficult decisions in the midst of their grief.

Graceland Cemetery would like to help you plan for the inevitable day when you will need the services of a funeral director and cemetery. Over 55% of all adult Americans do not have a will. Only one in three African American adults (32 percent) and one in four Hispanic American adults (26 percent) have wills, compared to more than half (52 percent) of white American adults. (2007, Harris Interactive® for Martindale-Hubbell®)

Someone, a spouse, child, friend or relative, will decide which cemetery and what type of cemetery lot or mausoleum crypt, and the size and style of memorial, often unaware of any wishes the deceased may have had.

Complete and submit the following form and we will give you valuable information to help you get started in the process. No obligation and no salesman will call unless you request more information.
