The choice of a family memorial deserves thoughtful and earnest consideration before the time of need. Making timely arrangements can protect your loved ones from additional sorrow and stress at an already difficult time. At the Italian Cemetery, individuals, couples, and families can work with our experienced staff to plan a pre-need arrangement.

Pre-need planning affords peace of mind—a comfort that comes from knowing that your affairs are in order, and that you or your loved ones will be cared for in the surroundings that you yourself have chosen.

Making pre-need arrangements also ensures that you will make decisions without the emotional stress of a recent loss.

Most importantly, making pre-need arrangements now permanently locks in today’s prices—regardless of future price increases. Historically, the cost of cemetery property and services has consistently risen.

Through the Italian Cemetery’s pre-need plan, you can finance the cost of memorial property over an extended period of time. We offer payment plans to suit all reasonable circumstances.

A counselor is available to discuss your pre-need arrangements either at the cemetery or in the comfort and privacy of your home.
