Catheys Valley CEMETERY COMMITTEE:
Do I have to be a resident of Mariposa County to be placed in the Cemetery? Yes, you do need to reside within the town of the Cemetery you would like to be placed in.
Can I reserve a plot within the Cemetery? No, we do not currently take reservations of plots. Plots are assigned on an as needed basis.
How much does a plot in the Cemetery cost? There is no cost for a plot space. However, there may be outside costs for grave digging, headstones, coping etc.
I am trying to locate a loved one within the cemetery. How can I find that information? The Mariposa Parks & Recreation office handles the record keeping for the three public cemeteries. You can come into the office or call 209-966-2498 and we would be happy to assist.
How can I have a loved one placed in the cemetery? Contact the Parks & Recreation office for required documentation. Once required documentation has been obtained and reviewed, a plot will be assigned. Once the plot is assigned, you can move forward with coordinating the burial with the grave digger and Funeral Home.
What are the plot sizes? A casket plot size is 4 1/2 x 9 single, and a cremation plot size is 3 x 2. Cremains require 18 inches of dirt fill on top. Caskets require a grave liner (contact Funeral Home for more information). For both plot sizes, you can put any style of headstone or decor, as long as it remains within the plot dimensions.
I am placing a loved one and would like to reserve the spot next to them for myself. Am I able to do so? No, we do not take reservations because of limited availability of plots.
For information on the Public Cemeteries and/or how to reach a member of the Cemetery committees, please contact Mariposa Parks & Recreation at 209-966-2498.
