Average cost of burial plots in the US (2021)

Note: PerfectGoodbyes is reader-supported. When you buy something through our links, we may earn a commission from our affiliate partners.

The average cost of a burial plot in the United States is $3,581. This figure is based on an analysis of 26,714 cemeteries from over 1,300 cities in the US. While the average is close to the typical price point observed in most listings, this figure can vary depending on location and the type of plot being purchased. Above-ground mausoleums and crypts typically cross the $10,000 threshold, while below-ground plots cost around $3,000 or less.

Many cemeteries offer discounts when two or more plots are purchased. The median price for purchasing two plots is roughly $4,500.

Note that when a Veteran, service member or family member qualifies for burial in a VA national cemetery, they may receive it at no cost. There are currently 138 such national cemeteries throughout the states.

How much does a burial plot cost in each state?

As mentioned above, where you end up buying the burial plot is a chief factor in the price. Plots in Alaska, for example, are among the cheapest in the nation with an average price of $775 per plot. Plots in New York and California are among the most expensive, averaging $6,742 and $7,052, respectively.

States like Louisiana and Hawaii also carry higher-than-normal burial plot prices. Because the water table in these locations is high, it allows for very shallow graves. Above-ground burial plots are more expensive than in-ground ones, so therefore the average cost of a plot increases in stats with these higher water tables.

How much are family burial plots?

When you purchase a burial plot, do you own it forever?

Practically, the answer is “yes”. Technically, the cemetery owns the land on which you have your burial plot. You are purchasing the right to use that plot – which typically is granted in perpetuity.

Can you bury a body in a plot without a casket?

No. State laws require the use of a casket when burying remains in a plot.
