Take your place in history
At the Forest Lawn Group of Cemeteries we recently made significant changes to our Rules and Regulations, and these changes may enable you to save a substantial amount of money on at-need or pre-need cremation burial space at any of our cemeteries.
For New Lot Purchases
We have expanded our "burial rights" - we now allow up to 4 burials in a single, full-size grave. This may include 1 full casket and 3 cremation urns or a total of 4 urns.
For each grave that a family purchases, four family members can be interred in that single grave, which can represent a significant cost savings. It also ensures that the family remains together forever. For example, 2 side-by-side graves can now include a total of 8 burials, which can include 2 caskets and 6 cremation burials or a total of 8 cremation burials.
Because of the expanded burial rights (allowing up to 4 burials in a single grave), an individual with an ancestor who purchased burial space at any of the Forest Lawn Group of Cemeteries may be entitled to FREE burial space for themselves and their spouse at that cemetery.
The descendant of the original lot owner can pursue their right to utilize the free burial space in one of two ways – one which guarantees that the space will be theirs to use, and another which documents their intent to use it.
We’ve made it simple for you to determine whether or not you are entitled to free burial space at any of our cemeteries and, if so, to pursue your options. All it takes is a phone call to us at 716-885-1600. Please Note that other NYS mandated fees for burial services would still apply.
Whether you prefer traditional or cremation burial, Williamsville Cemetery offers a final resting place unlike any other in the region. Some of the monuments you see here are literally more than two centuries old – thin slabs of stone that are memories of an earlier time.
Today, you have nearly endless options when it comes to selecting an individual memorial for yourself or a loved one. All of our peaceful resting areas allow upright monuments and flush markers for both traditional and cremation burials. In fact, you can choose nearly any shape or style monument, from a traditional marker to a boulder, bench, plaque or other memorial.
To learn more about arrangements at Williamsville Cemetery, please call one of our Family Service Representatives at (716) 885-1600, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
