Burials

As an active burial ground, the Sugarland cemetery continues to serve as a place for direct descendants of the community to be laid to rest alongside their ancestors. The process for burials is overseen by other descendants of Sugarland founding families, in cooperation with the funeral home of your choice. If needed, the Sugarland Ethno-History Project can review cemetery maps that outline family plots to help you identify the most appropriate location for the interment of you or your family member.
We do not charge family members for burial plots at the Sugarland cemetery. However, any donations for upkeep and maintenance will be gratefully received.
