What is the dimension of the hole in the ground? How many urns for ashes are permitted in one gravesite?

Each cemetery has its own special rules and regulations.  For example, Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis requires an “urn vault” for all the cremains that are buried there.  The maximum amount of cremains that Lakewood allows is two.  They also have specific graves just for cremated remains, so in those graves, just one. There are other cemeteries that allow up to three set of cremated remains in what is often referred to as a “traditional” grave.

When we contact cemeteries that do not have a vault requirement, we give the cemetery personal the exact dimensions of the urn that is going to be buried.  The minimum dept of a grave is 18” from the top of the urn. We would caution you when arranging for more than one burial of cremated remains in a cemetery to  check their rules and regulations as to how many markers can be placed on that grave as well.
