Rights of interment

A right of interment relates to a specific place of interment within a public cemetery – for example, a plot, grave, crypt or cremation niche. When you purchase a right of interment, you purchase the right to determine who can be interred in the place of interment and the type of memorial, if any, to be established (subject to cemetery trust memorialisation policies and specifications).
