A ‘cemetery’ is defined as a ‘burial ground,’ but cemeteries and their burial options can be quite diverse. What is the role of a cemetery? What are the different types of cemeteries and burial options? What are the main considerations that are to be made when preplanning a funeral or burial? These questions, and many others, will be answered. There will be a short walking tour of the Cemetery following the discussion.

Timothy Burns has been the Director of Cemetery Services at Newton Cemetery since 2012. He works with families, funeral directors, memorial dealers, visitors and cemetery staff, assisting those in need of Newton Cemetery’s services.
