Like most cemeteries, Penn Forest’s pricing is divided into three categories:

1.) Lot Purchases. (Interment rights). Buying a lot in a cemetery is not like buying land, although there are similarities. But, when you buy a lot, you don’t own land; you just own the right to be buried (interred) in that lot. For that reason, it is referred to it as an interment right.

If you buy a lot at Penn Forest and wish to sell it or transfer it to another person, that can be done. Just contact us for the procedures to follow and the forms to use. In addition, it is our policy that if you move more than 75 miles further from Penn Forest in the future than your address at the time of purchase, Penn Forest will buy your lots back at the price you paid less the 15% contribution to the Permanent Lot Care fund.

2).  Burial or Interment Fees. When someone is buried at Penn Forest, we charge an interment fee. This covers the cost of digging and filling the grave. Because of this, it is sometimes called the ‘opening and closing’ fee, but it also helps pay for employees’ salaries, taxes, utilities and cemetery overhead costs. Burial fees may fluctuate over time and cannot be prepaid before death.

Current Burial or Interment Fees

Body Burial Fee $1,800.00
Treemation (plant a tree of your choice on the cremated remains of a loved one) $1,200.00
Cremated Remains Burial Fee $   600.00
Cremated Remains Scattering Fees $   600.00

3.)  Merchandise Fees. These are fees for goods or services, like grave markers, memorial tree plantings, installation costs, costs for officiants’ or musicians’ services, all of which occur at the time of death or later. These fees may fluctuate over time and cannot be prepaid before death.

Note: All prices are subject to change without notice. These prices are indicative only; official price lists are available at the cemetery office. These prices do not include late fees for after-hours burial or holiday fees for burials on New Year’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving Day. No funerals can be scheduled on Christmas Day or after 12:00 noon on Christmas Eve.  All fees are subject to our published terms and conditions of sale.
