SOORTEN Graven in Nederland

Op Nederlandse veel begraafplaatsen in Nederland kan men afspreken er te zijn voor een bepaalde termijn

Algemene graven
In dit type graven worden lichamen in twee lagen begraven. Het is niet mogelijk vooraf een plaats uit te kiezen omdat de eerste vrije plek in een vak wordt benut (hetgeen betekent dat een kist in de onderste laag wordt begraven als de begraving daarvóór in de bovenste laag plaatsvond en de volgende zal dan ook weer in de bovenste laag geplaatst worden). Echtelieden kunnen daarom niet bij elkaar worden begraven, tenzij zij gelijktijdig overlijden. De bewaartijd is 15 jaar.
Eigen graven eindelooooooosss in charlooos bijvoorbeeld
Graf voor onbepaald toekomstige tijd - ‘eeuwigdurend’ - vindt men -zeker in NLD-regioR'dam- vrijwel nergens meer - Van dit type zijn graven voor één, twee en zelfs meer personen beschikbaar. Stoffelijke resten liggen naast elkaar -
Eigen graf korter dan 30 jr.
Voor één of twee personen - begraven In twee lagen, zodat echte-lieden bij elkaar liggen - overlijdens-moment 1ste persoon bepaalt begraaf-plek -
KINDER-graven
Gestorven kinderen tot 10 jr worden TEGENWOORDIG begraven op bijzondere plekjes op een kerkhof en uitgegeven met onbeperkte graf-termijn
URNEN-graven
Op een speciaal plekje hebben we de mogelijkheid gecreëerd om urnen in een zandgraf te plaatsen. Daarop kan een kleine gedenksteen worden gelegd. Deze urnengraven hebben een bewaartermijn van 30 jaar.
GRAF-kelders
Betonnen 'kuipen' afgesloten met 'n zerk mer daarin de stoffelijke resten, waarin doorgaans meerdere overledenen worden 'bijgezet' - geschikt om vervolgens 'n familie-graf te realiseren - bewaartijd onbeperkt -
URNEN-kelders
Kleine betonnen bakken in de grond waarin twee urnen kunnen worden bijgezet. De kelder wordt afgedekt met een gedenksteen. De bewaartermijn is onbeperkt.

N.B. Het is mogelijk om urnen te plaatsen in ‘gewone’ graven maar daarbij moet men bedenken dat in dat geval voor het aantal te begraven personen een urn gelijk staat aan een kist met stoffelijke resten. Dus in een tweepersoonsgraf mogen òf twee kisten worden begraven, òf een kist en een urn òf twee urnen.
