Perhaps your parents purchased family burial spaces when you were a child. Maybe your father even told you there was room for you in the family plot. But chances are you don’t own the deed to the property. It is possible that others in the family will use it before your family needs it.

You should find out now if there will be room for you and your spouse. Make sure you or your spouse won’t have to make an expensive time-of-death purchase of cemetery property because there is no room in your parents' plot.

To be interred in any cemetery property, the plot owner must approve and sign for all arrangements.

Ownership Transfers

In order to transfer ownership of a plot that is held in one spouse's name to the other spouse a Transfer Request must be completed, the owner must provide proof of identity either in person with government issued identification and/or by swearing a statutory declaration of intent with a Commissioner of Oaths. The administration fee in effect at the time will be applicable for each plot being transferred.
