All cemeteries are under constant budgetary issues. Starting a Grave Care Business is a win-win solution.
Shrubs need to be trimmed, grass needs to be mowed, and general plot maintenance needs to be undertaken. Cemeteries, ALL CEMETERIES, require constant upkeep. Likewise, ALL CEMETERIES face budgetary issues.
Cemeteries – low on money
While researching a cemetery in Dayton, Tennessee, I found a newspaper article with pleas from the Perpetual Care Organization (PCO). This cemetery is in dire need of funds. To continue upkeep of their cemetery, the PCO is requesting $40 annually from every family who has members interred there. The newspaper article does not mention the number of different families. However, Find-A-Grave lists over 3,000 burials. Multiply a percentage of this number by $40 and you can see for yourself there is a lot money in cemetery maintenance.
I have been a firm believer, for almost 2 decades, that the answer to this problem lies with private Grave Care Business owners. Grave care business owners take care of plot maintenance, mowing, floral decoration placement (and removal), tombstone cleaning, basic upkeep, cemetery mapping, and many other services. Business owners contact family members with lists of services and they bill those families on an “as-needed” or on a “contractual” basis.
Make money offering Grave Care Services
An independent grave care business owner alleviates the pressure on cemetery management. By shifting a portion of the workload to the business owner, cemetery management resources are freed up to take care of the larger maintenance items.
Families are relieved too. When hiring a Grave Care Business, family members can cater and request services based on their needs and desires. The work is performed to their standards. They get personalized care for their loved-one’s grave site. They are willing to pay good money for these services.
