Grave Opening-and-Closing Services for Ground, Crypt, or Niche Burials

A grave opening-and-closing or interment service is a requirement for any mausoleum crypt entombment, in-ground burial, or mausoleum cremation niche entombment

The burial ground opening and closing is performed by the cemetery at the time of the service. The process and cost of opening and closing a grave will differ depending on the type of memorialization. The main options include:

  • Mausoleum crypt and niche entombment includes opening the crypt or niche and then closing it after placement of the casket or cremation urn.
  • Ground burial includes opening the grave ground, preparing the burial site for the service, grave back-filling, and landscaping the area to ensure restoration and on-going beauty.
