DISINTERMENT FEES

Minimum of $5000 or actual cost of services, whichever is greater.
Disinterment (exhumation) means to dig up a body. A person seeking to exhume a body must usually petition to have the body exhumed, and most often will need a permit or court order to do so.  The movement of remains or cremains already interred in the Lone Tree Cemetery is forbidden without proper Colorado State permits and certifications. The District shall not be liable for disinterment or exhumation under order of the court.

THE APLIN MEMORIAL WALL
According to the National Funeral Directors Association, Americans are increasingly choosing cremation over burial, a trend driven by lower costs, fading religious taboos and environmental considerations. Today, almost 75% of Coloradans choose cremation, with many wishing to have their ashes scattered in the majestic Colorado mountains.  In partnership with Morris Monument the Lone Tree Cemetery District now offers the option of a wonderful, more affordable way to remember a loved one whose remains or cremains are not buried within the Cemetery.
Choose from one of four beautiful bronze plaque designs in varying sizes and price ranges, customized by you.  Your bronze memorial plaque will be permanently  mounted on The Aplin Memorial Wall, graciously built and donated to the Lone Tree Cemetery by Simon Aplin of Aplin Masonry. 


MEMORIAL WALL SPACE: $200 per space on the memorial wall, payable upon assignment of space to the Lone Tree Cemetery District.
