Maryland is home to a variety of cemeteries, including Lincoln Cemetery in Suitland that is the resting place of many prestigious African Americans. Burialplanning.com manages several cemeteries throughout the state, so you're certain to find one in a convenient location and with the features you desire.
Whether you were born there, lived in the state or have relatives who live there now, Maryland is a popular choice as a final resting place. Why? Parts of the state are close to Washington, DC, and Maryland is in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordered by Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia.
When you choose to be buried in a Maryland cemetery, you can select based on the natural beauty of the park, the features offered (such as a mausoleum), or the proximity to the family who will visit. Your next of kin will respect your wishes wherever you decide to be buried, but the most important aspect is deciding. It's not something we like to think about, but planning your funeral in advance ensures that your preferences are met, and removes the decision-making and financial burden off your loved ones during their time of grief.
