Cemetery Information

The City of Liberty prides itself in its care for the cemeteries. The Liberty Parks & Rec Department in close collaboration with the Cemetery Sexton carefully grooms the cemetery grounds at Fairview, New Hope and Mt. Memorial cemeteries year round, with extra attention during the spring and summer. Single, double and triple lots, along with various sizes of family lots are available in the Fairview/New Hope cemeteries.

Burial Decisions

Many people view the selection of a final resting place as an important personal decision, and choose a cemetery and reserve a burial plot for themselves well in advance of any need. Others leave the decision to family members. Whether you're considering purchasing your own burial plot or you're doing so for someone else, here is some information about Liberty’s cemeteries.
