Over the years, to keep pace with the economy while still offering affordable options, Quincy Memorial Park cemetery has offered numerous “Burial Plot” and “Mausoleum Service” packages. These special price packages allowed families to purchase anywhere from six to twelve graves on the grounds with the intent they be used by surviving heirs’ generations beyond their passing.
As families age and move away, we are seeing more and more family plots with one or two grave spaces that, although deeded, will never be used. If you are in that situation and are heir to a grave space that you will not use, please consider gifting your deed to an indigent or financially strapped family. (As with any donation, please check with your financial advisor for positive/negative Tax implications.) Please contact us for more information.
Finally, consider a one-time Grounds Grant in the amount of your choice. Ground Grants are typically used solely for the removal and replacement of diseased/dying trees and/or landscape upgrades.
