No, the purchaser or assigned burial right owner has an exclusive and permanent burial right conveyed by Catholic Cemeteries. This right passes to the spouse first or direct blood heirs immediately after the death of the recorded burial right owner if there’s no spouse. This applies to all graves, crypts, niches and family estates in the cemetery. Written permission of the heirs-at-law may be required for burial. It is advisable to secure any such written permission prior to advanced planning or immediate needs. For more information regarding Burial Rights, please contact a Family Service Advisor at any of our CFCS cemetery locations.
