Cemetery Lot Sales

Cemetery lots, or spaces, are available for purchase by the public in the cemeteries (Oak Hill and Eastview) owned and operated by the City of Newnan.  The Cemetery Sales Form can be filled out online by tabbing through the fields after selecting the appropriate cemetery at the top.  Only the top section (Purchaser/Owner Information) of the form needs to be completed by the purchaser.  The form is then printed and presented to the Cemetery Department at 70 Jefferson Street to complete the purchase.  Questions concerning lot purchases can be addressed to Jimmy Hemmings via email or at 770-253-3744.  A deed will be provided when payment for the lot(s) is recorded by the City of Newnan.  No privately owned cemetery lot can be sold or transferred to another party without the permission of the City Manager.  Burials are allowed after lot purchases are paid in full;  the owner must present the deed when making funeral arrangements.

Lot purchases are typically paid in full at the time of purchase, however, the City does allow installment plans.  Lots purchased under an installment plan require 25% down with the balance to be paid over 12 equal monthly installments bearing an interest rate of 12% annually.  The purchaser will sign a promissory note for the unpaid balance.  If the purchaser fails to complete the payments according to the promissory note, the City may issue a refund of the principal paid less a $25 admin fee; then the lot(s) will be resold to other interested parties by the City.  Under no circumstances shall the deed to the lot(s) be issued, or the space(s) used for burials, until the total amount due is paid in full to the City of Newnan.
