Free Cemetery Plot Information
If you are or have been a permanent resident of Hansville (including residents of the Cliffside development) for over a year, you are eligible for a free cemetery plot at the Hansville Cemetery. You can reserve a burial plot by contacting us. In addition to the residency condition, another requirement is that your loved ones provide a flat grave stone and have it in place within a year after burial. We can help you get one for a very reasonable cost if assistance is required.
