The very first course of action is to contact the cemetery where the plots are located. Ask to speak with a sales counselor or transfer agent to notify of your intention to sell and have “Change of Ownership” forms mailed to you in advance. Having the proper documentation beforehand will serve to expedite the transfer process. Oftentimes, a buyer will need your plot immediately. Seek the advice of cemetery personnel to provide the steps necessary in order to satisfy their specific transfer requirements.
