Cemeteries are not only regarded as areas of remembrance to honour the deceased but also provide opportunities to create green footprints within urban landscapes. The word "cemetery," which is the traditional place to bury the dead, comes from the German words koimeterion (meaning a sleeping place), and koiman (to put to sleep). There are public and private cemeteries, commercial cemeteries, and national cemeteries for veterans. When you are purchasing a cemetery plot, consider the location of the cemetery and whether it meets the requirements of your family's religion. Other considerations include what, if any, restrictions the cemetery places on burial vaults purchased elsewhere, the type of monuments or memorials it allows, and whether flowers or other remembrances may be placed on graves.
Cemeteries form an important function in community life and the municipality is responsible for the maintenance of most cemeteries in Mbombela.
