We recommend that all miscarriage burials take place in cemeteries
versus at a person's residence. It avoids future issues which may arise when moving your residence or when a home
burial site needs to be disturbed. Please contact your cemetery to find out what their burial policies are. We recommend
that you show the cemetery personnel the burial containers you intend on using prior to your purchase. Many cemeteries
allow burials of miscarried babies at the head of cemetery plots which you own (or a relative owns). Also, many cemeteries offer
small, reasonably priced plots in a "Baby Garden" for this
type of burial.
If you decide a cemetery burial is not feasible, then a home burial
may be your only option. Be sure to check the laws in your area which may govern this. Assure prior to
digging that your burial site is not over any underground dangers such as buried wires, gas lines, etc. Also, be
sure to mark your burial site with some sort of permanent marker. You may consider burying a large metal object a few
inches under the ground over the burial site so that it can be detected with a metal detector at a later date.
