Our Pricing

River Bend provides spaces for full casket burial, cremation burial, or in our columbarium, all at reasonable prices. We allow either a monument or a bench as the main headstone on our lots.

We also have a payment plan for those wishing to own a burial site at today’s prices rather than at a higher cost many years in the future.
