I live in California. My mother purchased a cremations niche, endowment care, engraving, opening, closing and a graveside service set up. In the year before her death, she was adamant on a full body burial in a cemetery other than the one in which she purchased the niche.
The cemetery with whom she has the cremation contract will not buy back the niche and I was advised to post it on craigslist.
Any advice? Thank you in advance for your time and direction.
