TOPIC: Guidance in selling pre-need cremation niche

Guidance in selling pre-need cremation niche 20 Sep 2012 01:18 #842


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.

I am posting the following on behalf of a member of the Deathcare Discussion List.


I'm not a member of the forum but I know is one buying/selling site. It was recommended to me by a FD whom I trust.
