Steps for Scheduling a Burial

You have two options to arrange a burial depending on whether or not you choose to work with a funeral home. In either case one weeks notice for the burial or interment is appreciated.

Option A - Working with a Funeral Home

  • The funeral home will make all burial arrangements with the City. It is unnecessary for you to contact the City unless you have specific questions.

Option B - Not Using a Funeral Home

1.)  Select a date and time for the burial or interment with family and friends
2.)  Schedule a minister or priest if desired
3.) Schedule a date and time with the City
Phone: (207) 854-0660 x 3007
4.) Contact monument company for stone

Rules for Cremations:

  • Cremains (ashes) must be contained in a marble or concrete urn. If not, a vault is required.
  • The City allows 2 cremations in a single grave.
