Cemetery

Home > Services> Cemetery

The beautifully landscaped and meticulously cared for Espanola Cemetery is located at 386 Ricci Drive.

Traditionally, interment arrangements are made through the Funeral Director.  Families who choose cremation have the option to work directly with the Public Works Department.

Important Information:

  • The purchase of a plot at the cemetery does not constitute the purchase of land.  The plot purchase is recognized as Interment Rights only.  
  • Only the Interment Rights Holder can direct the interment of human remains and monuments.
  • A transfer of Interment Rights is not binding upon the Cemetery until a duly executed transfer has been deposited with the Public Works Department. Citizens who are unable to produce Interment Rights may start the process at the Public Works Department to have Interment Rights recognized by the completion of an affidavit form.  There is a fee for a Commissioner of Oath to complete the affidavit at the Municipal Office, or the Public Works Department.
