Parks & Cemeteries desires to maintain the Cemetery at an appearance acceptable to the citizens. The cemetery represents an area where our loved ones are remembered; a place where we can all visit with love and devotion.
Lots & Space Pricing
Cemetery spaces are $200.00 each.
See Rules & Information for more information about lot sizes. Each space is 4'x10' and up to three cremations can be put on one grave space but only one head stone on the grave.
Requirements for Baby-Land
There will be a $25.00 charge to any family making funeral arrangements if there is a footstone on the grave space to be opened. This charge will be to the City of Poteau so that the employees can set the monument back at the foot of the grave after the grave has settled.
Rules and Information
City of Poteau is the primary care taker for the responsibility of taking care and maintaining lots.
