Cemetery Arrangements

Lots are available for purchase in the Schreiber Cemetery for both full burial and the burial of cremains.  Cremains may also be inurned in the columbarium located in the cemetery, or on top of an existing full burial in the cemetery.  The Township of Schreiber does not allow for the pre-purchase of any lots for future use, but does allow for the pre-purchase of niches in the columbarium for future use.

A contract for the purchase of interment rights and services or inurnment rights and services is required to be completed for the pre-purchase of niches in the columbarium and for every burial that is done in the cemetery.
