My loved one's grave has sunk. How do I fill it?

Fresh graves are typically left with a mound of excess soil to allow the natural settling of the soil while maintaining a level consistent with the ground around the grave.

In the event of rainy weather, the soil in the grave will settle more and faster causing the grave to "sink". We strive to fill these as soon as we are able. In the event your loved one's grave has sunk, please call the Cemetery Office and let them know your loved one's grave needs more soil.
