Business Description

These are three privately-owned, for-profit cemeteries. This is a very well-run operation with a great reputation in the community. There is a great deal of potential to increase revenue.

Property Information


The business consists of three cemeteries, each with approximately sixteen acres. Two of the three cemeteries have office and maintenance buildings as well as utilities. The third is a more rural location with no buildings. Utilities are available.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

The company currently operates without a full-time salesperson. Adding someone in this position would be the quickest, easiest route to grow the company.


There is almost no competition for the cemetery specifically. The local city cemetery has no interment spaces left for purchase. One other small cemetery exists in the town. It caters to a small number of families in its immediate area and has a reputation of being poorly managed. The local funeral homes succeed in securing the majority of at need sales of vaults. The cemeteries succeed in securing the majority of memorial sales within the cemetery as well as some memorial sales at cemeteries in outlying farming community cemeteries. Both of these could be improved by a full-time salesperson.

Reason for selling:

The owners are selling in order to focus on other opportunities.

Support & Training:

Will train for 8 weeks @ no cost The company maintains and provides cemetery related goods and services for the community. This includes mowing and maintaining the cemetery grounds and infrastructure, interments, and sales of floral arrangements, vaults, memorials and interment rights.
