A General Cemetery is an older style cemetery, usually divided into denominations and with full grave covers. These cemeteries are usually old and in many country towns are being closed owing to the amount of unknown and unmarked graves. In many towns these cemeteries are only used where a recorded reservation is available. Smaller rural centers still use this type of cemetery.
Full grave covers are used in most general cemeteries. These come in many shapes and sizes and again can be built to suit your own design. In the past manmade monuments such as concrete or terrazzo have been popular, however granite is now very comparable in price and has become more so. Granite is much harder being a polished rock and will outlast any manmade substance. It also is more appealing to the eye.
