Donations and FAQ


Donations are always welcomed and accepted.  Please consider becoming a Friend of Carter Cemetery and help us honor the memories of our families by supporting us with an annual contribution which will enable us to continue the maintenance of the grounds and to make improvements we can all be proud of.

Memorial gifts are also appreciated by the families of the deceased.  Those can be sent to Carter Cemetery Trust giving us appropriate information so that we may send an acknowledgement of your thoughtful gift to the family.



Who owns Carter Cemetery?
    Carter Cemetery is a non-profit cemetery trust.  We operate under the direction of a board of trustees.

When I buy a grave site, do I receive a deed just like when I purchase other real estate?
    When you purchase a grave you are, in fact, purchasing the right to designate who may be interred in the space, rather than purchasing the grave itself, which remains the property and responsibility of the cemetery.  You also have a right to place a memorial within the cemetery guidelines.

How can I find information for a relative I know is buried at Carter Cemetery?
    You may e-mail or write to us with your specific questions and give us first and last names of the deceased and approximate year of death if that is available.  We will gladly reply with any information we have on record.

Why is having a place to visit so important?
    Because it provides a focal point for memoralizing the deceased and a place for survivors to return over time to remember and honor their loved ones.  To remember and to be remembered are natural human needs.  It can also serve an important emotional function for survivors by helping to bring closure and allowing the healing process to begin.  At Carter Cemetery, we are providing a permanent resting place for the deceased, which is a dignified treatment for a loved one's mortal remains and fulfills the natural human desire for memoralization.

What does an "independent non-profit" cemetery mean to me?
    Independent means that we are not part of any other organization and that all decisions are made by us and for us.  Non-profit means that we have no shareholders to share revenues with, and all monies in excess of expenses stay in the cemetery for maintenance and improvement.

Are there regulations I must follow for burial at Carter Cemetery and where can I get a copy?
    Yes.  The trustees adopted regulations which set forth cost of plots, monument sizes and placement, and general guidelines which will help in the appearance, safety, and ease of maintaining the grounds.  We have given an overview of these regulations on the "Information Page" of this site but you may contact us by e-mail or letter for a complete copy of these regulations.  Area funeral directors should also be able to provide a copy and you may also find them at the cemetery as well.
