Lot Holder Rights
Graves and crypts are conveyed by an Easement which gives the purchaser, not direct ownership, but an exclusive and permanent right of use. Upon the death of the purchaser, ownership rights automatically descend to direct blood heirs equally unless the rights are specifically assigned to a particular heir. The spouse of the original purchaser always has a dower right of burial ahead of other heirs. Where a non-blood heir is to be buried, permission of other blood heirs is required, and families are encouraged to obtain these permissions in advance of need and place them on file at the cemetery. Removals from graves or crypts may be made only with the permission of the purchaser of the holding or his / her heirs, and the nearest relation(s) of the person to be removed.
Return and Exchange Policy
Any unused grave or crypt purchased from Our Mother of Sorrows Catholic Cemetery, may be exchanged or returned. The return is subject to some restrictions and each case must be reviewed before a refund is given. This policy protects families if conditions change or especially if there is a relocation.
