Sometimes, you have to contact the office (usually a funeral home) to get the grave location information. Are they helpful? Are they pleasant? Here we can share our experiences, the good and the not so good.

If you are in the market for cemetery plots for yourself or family, wouldn't you want to invest in a cemetery where you knew your family and friends would be treated with respect and assistance would be given AFTER you have passed? Wouldn't you want to know the level of customer service after the deal is complete? Review before you buy - you may be surprised!

While based in Houston, this group is for anyone in any country who is willing to share their experiences.

The home page for this group is Cemetery and Funeral Home Reviews.

Updated Rating System:
A+ Went above and beyond, like taking you to the grave-site if you couldn't find it. A Very helpful and pleasant B+ Helpful and sufficient B Helped you
C+ Got the information but you had to wait an unreasonable amount of time. (Would not include times when a funeral is taking place)
C Supplied the requested information with an attitude of annoyance
D Supplied the requested information in a rude manner
F Would supply the information for a fee
F- Failed to supply the information, failed to return calls or emails or agreed to supply the information but never did .

At present only a handful of cemeteries in a few Texas counties and a few other states are represented on the site. Please consider submitting a review for the cemeteries in your location. States with Reviews: California Florida Georgia Illinois New York Texas

I am friends with a Funeral Director and I know that in NJ if you are cremated you can be buried 3 in one plot. I should ask if your pet is cremated if they could be put in the plot -- I wonder what the laws are on that. I also know, in this state you can be buried in a cardboard box if you wanted. (What a money saver.) I know our little dog max is like a second child. In fact, we believe he thinks he is human.

I love pets and I think pet cemeteries are a comforting idea. The next best thing would be teh cemeteries that allow pet and master to be buried together

A few more pictures of the beloved family pets that are resting in peace.

I am guessing this if for "people" cemeteries which I go to a lot but there is a pet cemetery a few miles from my home that I found very interesting. The oldest grave I saw was from 1950. I am attaching a few photo's just for "fun".
