Thanks for your support of cemetery

Because of the generous fundraiser provided by the Natchez Monument Co., the Natchez City Cemetery will continue the restoration of the historic cistern houses and the extra care in maintaining the cemetery.

The Natchez Cemetery will keep a total of $500 profit from the sale of each bench.

We are having a tremendous response because of you the public. We have only a few more benches to sell, so please call and reserve one.

Cemetery care continues on forever. A cemetery is the only business that sells something once and takes care of it forever.

We expect cemeteries to last —because we expect our memories of the past to last forever.

A cemetery reflects the values and beliefs of a community. It is a footprint left behind — a touch of our immortality.

Fundraisers, generous donations, memorials and Angels on the Bluff are ways that the Natchez City Cemetery continues to be a landmark of our history and a sacred final resting place for our loved ones.

To buy a bench call Danny Brown, cemetery manager, at 601-445-5051. To contribute a donation or memorial, please mail it to the Natchez City Cemetery, P.O. Box 1738, Natchez, MS, 39121.
