Grave Openings and Closings

The City of Newnan charges a fee for opening and closing graves in Oakhill and Eastview cemeteries.  The cemetery superintendent must collect all fees in advance of any grave opening.  Additionally, the owner of the lot(s) must be in possession of the deed to the lot(s), as no burials are allowed until the lot(s) are purchased and paid for.  

The Cemetery Sales Form is used to make arrangements for burial.  Please open and complete only the top two sections (Purchaser/Owner Information and Deceased's Information) of the form online by tabbing through the fields.  Then print the form and present it to the Cemetery Department at 70 Jefferson Street to complete the arrangements.  A copy of the deed to the cemetery lot being utilized must be attached to the sales order if the lot was previously purchased.  Both the lot purchase and burial arrangements can be made at the same time, however, through utilization of the Sales Order form.

Questions can be addressed to Jimmy Hemmings.  Below is the information related to the costs for opening and closing a grave.  For lot purchase prices, please refer to the middle section of the form.
