We prefer to have people choose spaces in person so they can see what the area looks like around their spaces. Some people might prefer trees, being close to the road so they don’t have to walk far, being close to a waterline for watering flowers, etc. Although spaces can be sold on a walk-in basis, we prefer that people call ahead so as not to disturb funeral services. If coming to the cemetery is not possible, we will sell the space by e-mail, fax or phone.
Evergreen Cemetery has an online Burial Search program where the spaces are color-coded by their status, so you can see which spaces are sold, available, etc. The program can be found at www.manitowoc.org/evergreen. You can also print out a map or use GPS inside the cemetery to locate gravesites. Each green rectangle is an available space. To use the GPS feature you must be within five miles of the cemetery grounds. Use your smartphone or tablet, click on the link above, then tap the compass button. You may be asked to share your location information. If you answer yes, then you will see a timer spinner until your GPS location is found. A blue dot will appear on the map indicating your location. (Please note that if you are using a device that does not have GPS capabilities, the program will instead use Web GPS, which gets its location from your internet connection instead of GPS satellites.) Keep in mind that recent sales may not have been entered into the system yet.
Please contact our office at your earliest convenience to schedule a tentative burial date and time, so as to avoid scheduling conflicts with other burials. We require a minimum of one working day’s notice in order to have the grave prepared. If a space has not been purchased previously, then we will require the space to be chosen and paid for a minimum of one working day prior to the burial. We will also require the size of the cremation urn or vault, payment in full for the opening and closing of the grave at the time of burial, and a copy of a cremation or death certificate. If the death occurred in Wisconsin in the last 12 months, you may be able to have the funeral director fax us a copy of the completed Report for Final Disposition. Burials may occur between 7 A.M. and 4:30 P.M., Mondays through Saturdays; however additional fees apply for Saturday burials and for burials on any day of the week which occur at 2:00 p.m. or later.
