Cemetery Management Headaches

There are many challenges that come with effectively operating a cemetery:

INCOMPLETE, INACCURATE, AND CONFUSING DOCUMENTATION:

In many communities, cemetery data is documented in spreadsheets, handwritten and typed books, coffee-stained maps, and even only known by one individual. Managing a cemetery with this kind of disjointed data can cause headaches for those running the cemetery and even frustration in the public.

UNCERTAINTY ABOUT LOCATION OF UNMARKED BURIALS:

How sure are you that the open spaces in your cemetery are actually unoccupied?
Requests coming in for burial space may conflict with unmarked burials that are not identified.

DIFFICULT TO SHARE INFORMATION WITH THE COMMUNITY:

With the growing interest in genealogical research, cemetery managers are fielding requests for information from the public and have few good options for readily sharing that information.

WORKING WITH INCORRECT RECORDS COMPOUNDS ERRORS:

Decision making using inaccurate and inconsistent records leads to errors, and those errors lead to more errors.

How we can help:

 

We come to your site to conduct document review, field observations, stakeholder discussion, and GPS collection, and we combine that information to create accurate cemetery documentation

CEMETERY MAPPING IS A VITAL TOOL FOR CEMETERY MANAGERS

OUR CEMETERY MAPPING SERVICES WILL HELP YOU PRESERVE YOUR CEMETERY’S HISTORY FOR GENERATIONS TO COME

Cemetery preservation not only honors the departed, but also ensures that it will continue to convey its inherent social, cultural, and historic values to future generations of the community’s residents.

Cemeteries contain information on the area’s social, cultural, and historic heritage while providing genealogical data and information on the history of a particular place, religious practice, and lifestyle. They also display the folk art of tombstone carving and preserve the natural features of the landscape.

Cemetery mapping is a vital, foundational step in historic cemetery preservation by creating an accurate burial plot map and documentation of the cemetery’s features, as well as identifying needs for future restoration.

GPS cemetery mapping will increase interest in your cemetery with a new audience. It will bring a new audience and potential customers to your cemetery.
