RESERVATION & BURIAL INFORMATION
5301 Northbound Hwy. 287 Access Road / 5211 Rancho Dr., Arlington, TX
Hawkins Cemetery has been a community owned cemetery since 1890 when George W. Kee sold it to the community. Spaces are reserved, not purchased. Reservation fees paid to Hawkins Cemetery Association are used for maintenance only. Unused spaces can be given back to the cemetery or re-assigned to a family member. Hawkins does not ‘buy back’ spaces.
Reservation fees are currently $1,000.00 per traditional burial space. Cremation burial spaces are $ 500.00 for each cremation urn. Payment may be made to the funeral director or directly to a Hawkins Cemetery representative.
Two cremation urns may be buried in one traditional space at $500.00 for each cremation urn.
At ‘Time of Need’ a marker fee in the amount of $ 250.00 is due for each burial. This fee is refundable provided a permanent marker is placed on the space WITHIN ONE YEAR after interment. We ask that the funeral director place a temporary marker at the burial site for temporary identification.
A concrete grave liner is required for traditional burial and is ordered by the funeral director.
- Arrangments for opening and closing of the grave are handled through the funeral director.
Additional spaces near a deceased family member are often available but to secure a desired location the space fee must be paid in full. A numbered Reservation Certificate will be issued for each pre-need space purchase. At time of need the Certificate should be presented to the funeral director. It is then returned to Hawkins Cemetery Assoc. along with a Report of Death.
- Markers are set by appointment at least two days in advance.
- Fees are subject to change without notice. 01/2018
