PROCESS FOR PURCHASING PLOTS AND COLUMBARIUM NICHES


To purchases a plot or columbarium niche, you need to contact Cemetery Superintendent Floyd Craig at 845-658-9181 after you decide where you would like your plot(s), niche(s) to be. On most occasions, you will get his answering machine and he will get back to you in a short period of time. You can either visit the cemetery before you meet with Mr. Craig, or he can meet you at the cemetery by appointment to assist you with choosing your location and answering any questions you may have. Once you have decided on the plot(s) or columbarium niche(s) you want and he has authorized you to make the purchase, you give him a check made out to the Rosendale Plains Cemetery Association for the proper amount based on the price list below along with any additional charges Mr. Craig advises you are needed for special circumstances such as wintertime or abnormally difficult burials. In addition to the check, you must provide Mr. Craig with the name that you want on the deed as well as the deed holders email address, physical address, and phone number. On receipt of payment, we will issue you a deed that will be digitally signed by our President and emailed to you. If you do not have an email address, we will send a hard copy to you. In some cases, the funeral home will allow you to pay them for the plot(s), niche(s), and interments and they in turn will pay us. We do require payment prior to issuance of a deed or preparatory work for interment. As the potential deed holder, you are responsible for the payment so you must assure they make payment to us immediatly. It is important to understand that the interment process will not begin until the cemetery has received payment.

Checks for quick interments can be sent overnight to 87 Grist Mill Road / Tillson, NY 12486. No interments without pre-pay unless authorized by us.
