How are religious customs and practices handled at Sharon?
The grounds within Sharon Memorial Park are consecrated for Jewish burials whether Reform, Conservative or Orthodox. There are separate “Beersheba” sections specifically for interfaith households where one of the partners is of the Jewish faith. All customs and practices will be respected as long as they do not conflict with our operation of the cemetery or the rules and regulations of the Park.

How many can be buried in one space?
Burials at Sharon Memorial Park are one burial per space.

Who can be buried in my lot?
As the lot owner, you or your heir(s) have the right to designate who will be buried in your lot(s). Burial at Sharon Memorial Park is for the remains of the human dead of the Jewish faith except as noted above for interfaith sections.

Why doesn’t Sharon use headstones?
Sharon is a memorial park which, by definition, is a cemetery where memorials are flush to the ground and the natural beauty of the area is not obstructed by rows of tombstones.  Sharon permits only flush bronze plaques.
