Death, funeral, cemetery -- they're not the happiest subjects or words and we tend not to discuss them or even plan for them.  And because we don't plan for death, or for a funeral, or for having a grave or final resting place in a cemetery, we can be susceptible to being victimized at worst -- or making costly decisions and decisions that we will regret later, at best.  We need to plan for the end which means we need an exit strategy.  Companies and business leaders know that it is wise to have an exit strategy.  Governments and armies plan for an exit strategy.  And as consumers we need an exit strategy, too.  Where will our final resting place be?  What will be the arrangements?  Who will carry them out?  How will it impact our families?  Here we will try to give you helpful information.


Update November 7, 2012  I was surprised to find out that graves and grave-sites, as well as final resting places such as mausoleums can be bought and sold on the open market.  Cemeteries do not control this market and the buying and selling of sites are not always exclusive to cemetery companies.  There are, in fact, brokers who can help you buy a cemetery plot or grave-site from another family that no longer wants that cemetary location.  And if your family bought a final resting place years earlier, and now your family has relocated and your plans for a final resting place have also changed, then a broker can help you sell your cemetary location.

I recently met Loren and Glory Bayer who own the licensed and bonded Bayer Cemetery Brokers.  "Cash For Graves" is what they advertise and they specialize in listing and selling cemeter property that people no longer need.  The specialize in Southern California cemetery sites but they can assist with buying and selling grave-sites natonwide.  For those wanting to buy a site, they can often find a location with a savings of up to 60-percent, Loren Bayer told me.

Cemetery grave locations and final resting places for urns, and even mausoleums become available because plans change.  Sometimes a family might make a pre-need purchase years or even decades in advance.  And then, when members of the family move to other parts of a state or around the country, the family might decide to make final arrangements for elsewhere in the country.  That's when they might choose to call a cemetery broker such as Loren and Glory Bayer to help them sell a site they no longer want -- and to find a new grave-site or family plot elsewhere.

Bayer Cemetery Brokers not only can save you time and money looking for the best site, but they can also take the pressure off of families when a loved-one has passed and they need to make arrangements quickly.  Former clients have praised Loren and Glory Bayer for their professionalism and advice and concern and caring.  Our TV show report about Bayer Cemetery Brokers is below.  Bayer Cemetery Brokers was started fourteen years ago and their basic goal is to save a family as much as $5,000 to $6,000 on a funeral or sometimes more.  If your family does not have a funeral home or casket, they can refer you to their network of cost-saving providers.

Bayer Cemetery Brokers can help you plan, buy, sell and trade.

There is a basic code of ethics or standards in the funeral industry known as The Funeral Rule.  Specifics of The Funeral Rule will vary according to state laws.  But these are the basics of The Funeral Rule:

  • you have the right to choose the funeral goods and services you want (with some exceptions).
  • the funeral provider must state this right in writing on the general price list.
  • if state or local law requires you to buy any particular item, the funeral provider must disclose it on the price list, with a reference to the specific law.
  • the funeral provider may not refuse, or charge a fee, to handle a casket you bought elsewhere.
  • a funeral provider that offers cremations must make alternative containers available.
