St. Raymond’s Cemetery requires anyone purchasing a plot or wanting to bury a loved one within our cemetery grounds to provide proof of being of Catholic faith for each. Acceptable documents for proof would include; Certificate of Baptism, Certificate of Communion or Confirmation, Certificate of Marriage in a Catholic Church, or a letter from your Parish Priest stating you/were a parishioner. If a mass is not scheduled at the time of burial, one of the above is required for interment and purchase of location.
Ownership remains with the Church of St. Raymond’s and St. Raymond’s Cemetery: my right is to use the burial plot for burials only, as explained in the Certificate of Burial Privilege. The purchase price does not include interment fee, which must be paid at the time services. No Duplicate certificates will be issued at any time for any reason. Only one name may appear on any certificate. Please find our Sales Form here. Fill out form completely and submit to our office.
