the family chooses cremation, is an urn vault required?
We will accept the container of your choice
as long as it is not glass or ceramic. The crematorium will furnish
a container at the time of service and this container is acceptable.
If the family wishes to up-grade to an urn or other container, that

and their funeral director.
sure you know the truth about your veteran's benefits, before you commit
to a cemetery.
If you are a veteran you are entitled to be buried
in a veterans cemetery. In the Quincy area, the National Cemetery at
36th and Maine may not have graves available, but the Sunset Cemetery
at the Illinois Veterans' home on North 12th street and the National
Cemetery in Keokuk, Iowa do have graves available. If you are unsure
of your death benefits, check with the funeral director of your choice
or check with the adjutant's office at the Illinois Veterans' Home.
They will be able to answer all your questions.
provided headstones or markers.
If you qualify for a government-provided headstone
or marker, you need to check with the cemetery to see what the setting
fees will be charged. Currently at Greenmount, we will set the marble
and granite, either flat or up right, at no charge to the family. We
will bill the State of Illinois for their allowable setting fee. Greenmount
does not have the equipment to set the bronze plaques furnished by the
government, but they are allowed to be set on the grounds. It is necessary
for the family to make the arrangements with a monument company to have
the bronze plaques set at the gravesite.
