Visit various cemeteries and compare prices.
Ask what they charge for grave opening and closing.
Ask whether you are required to buy a vault (in NJ, you must purchase this from a funeral director).
In addition, you will likely want to buy a headstone. Ask if you can buy from any vendor and if the cemetery charges for installation, requires a base, etc.
