Gardens Lots and Interment Spaces

The grounds at Memorial Park are subdivided into gardens and islands. The gardens are further divided into interment spaces, monument spaces, walkways and feature areas. Not all gardens have monument spaces and/or feature areas. Interment spaces and monument spaces are usually grouped into lots. The most common lot arrangement includes 6 interment spaces, 3 in front and 3 in back, with a monument space in the center. There are lots with as few as 4 interment spaces and as many as 33 spaces.

Battle Creek Memorial Park Association reserves the right to re-plat unsold interment spaces, monument spaces, walkways, roadways and feature locations.

Lots of 12 or more interment spaces may be subdivided into two lots for monument purposes. Resulting monument spaces must be at least 3 interment spaces wide. No subdivision for monument space purposes is to be for less than half of the total spaces on the lot and/or result in a remaining monument space less than 3 interment spaces wide. Interment spaces may be purchased individually or in groups in most gardens in the Park. Monument spaces are available to owners of half lots or more, subject to availability.

Individual interment spaces are at least 40 inches in width and 96 inches in length. Monument spaces are at least 120 inches wide and 48 inches deep. The orientation of all lots and the head and foot of all interment spaces has been established. Generally, the front of all lots will border that is adjacent road, walkway or lake. The head of all interment spaces will be the end away from the monument space. All memorial installations will be consistent with the lotís orientation.

Interment spaces may be subdivided into a front half and a rear half for the interment of infants and/or cremated remains. Monument spaces may be subdivided into a monument space one and monument space two for the interment of infants and/or cremated remains.
