GREENFIELD — The Greenfield City Council voted at its Wednesday, April 28 meeting to approve a price increase at Park Cemetery.

The change to city code increased prices for a standard single grave from $625 to $800, and for an infant grave from $175 to $225. The ordinance also set the cost for burial, which funeral homes are responsible for, at $800 for a traditional burial, $300 for a cremation burial, and $225 for an infant or a burial paid for by Medicaid.

Additionally, the cemetery will charge $1,600 for disinterment of a standard grave, $700 for cremation graves, and $450 for an infant grave.

City officials said the price increase was proposed at the request of Park Cemetery staff after they conducted a recent review of their prices.
