Burial on Private Property


I own almost 90 acres and live on the same farm. Can I be buried there? Can I have other family members buried there as well?

The answer to the question is yes. However, you must petition the local authorities (including both the Board of Health and the Zoning and Planning Commission) that may exist in the area to ask for permission to do so.

The zoning for a cemetery carries certain perpetuity clauses and restrictions so that later land owners know of the cemetery's existence. The deed to the property has to have a restriction placed on it as well, again, so people will know of the cemetery's existence at a later point in time.--David R. Shirley
