Purchase of Plots

Mantua’s policy on the purchase of resident and non-residents Cemetery Plots is as follows:  An individual who is currently a resident and has lived in Mantua at least 6 consecutive months, a non-resident is anyone not living within the Mantua Town limits.

Our policy is that each resident may purchase a plot for themselves and must name another resident if another lot is purchased at resident rates.  If the resident purchases a plot and names a non-resident to be the owner of that plot, it would be non-resident rates for that burial plot.  If a resident purchases a plot then buries a non-resident in the plot there would be a transfer fee of $1150.00 at the time of internment. If a resident sells a plot to a non-resident there would be an $1150.00 transfer fee to the new owner to have the name changed on the plot.  

Burials If the resident moves or leaves Town on their own free will then they will be considered a non-resident at the time of their burial.  This does not apply to any dependent attending school elsewhere, being called on a mission for their church or having to move into a care facility.
  Perpetual Care A fee will be charged at the time of purchase of a Cemetery Plot and at burial, this will go toward the care of the Cemetery.
