We prefer to have people choose spaces in person so they can see what the area looks like around their spaces. Some people might prefer trees, being close to the road so they don’t have to walk far, being close to a waterline for watering flowers, etc. Although spaces can be sold on a walk-in basis, we prefer that people call ahead so as not to disturb funeral services. If coming to the cemetery is not possible, we will sell the space by e-mail, fax or phone.
Evergreen Cemetery has an online Burial Search program where the spaces are color-coded by their status, so you can see which spaces are sold, available, etc. The program can be found at www.manitowoc.org/evergreen. You can also print out a map or use GPS inside the cemetery to locate gravesites. Each green rectangle is an available space. To use the GPS feature you must be within five miles of the cemetery grounds. Use your smartphone or tablet, click on the link above, then tap the compass button. You may be asked to share your location information. If you answer yes, then you will see a timer spinner until your GPS location is found. A blue dot will appear on the map indicating your location. (Please note that if you are using a device that does not have GPS capabilities, the program will instead use Web GPS, which gets its location from your internet connection instead of GPS satellites.) Keep in mind that recent sales may not have been entered into the system yet.
