Elk Run Cemetery
Have you considered purchasing your burial plots in advance? This is a hard process for loved ones to cope with when someone passes away unexpectedly. If you purchase a space at the current rate of $600.00 you won't need to worry about a price increase in the future.
In addition, when a burial occurs the Town of Elkton charges a minimal $400.00 fee to mark, open and close the burial space. This fee is not payable in advance since no procedure has been initiated to control the collection of money. Shortly, after burial occurs the flowers will be removed by the town and the space will be leveled and seeded. You will have the option to purchase and place a stone of your selection on your plot at any time.
The Elk Run is well maintained all year round. Our courteous, knowledgeable staff is available from 8:30am thru 4:30pm daily and welcome your concerns. You may call the office at 540-713-4062 and request to speak to Charlotte Shifflett, Director or Amber Cubbage, Assistant Director.

If you are a lot owner in Section 5, 6 and/or 7 (old section at front entrance) your lot number may not match the original deed. Your space will remain the same but lot numbers now match the existing map which has existed for years. Somewhere over time the numerical system got out of organization.
The Cemetery Director is available from 8:30am thru 4:30pm daily and may be reached by calling 540-713-4062. As always, I remain eager to serve your needs.
If the owner of a lot (s) would like to mow and care for their lot (s), this request should be placed in writing to the Cemetery Director along with a phone number and address where you may be contacted in a case of neglect to your lot (s). The parties involved should understand that the lots are still under the control of the Cemetery Commission. If at any time the lot (s) become overgrown, unsightly, or the main character and beauty of the grounds have been compromised, the lot owner will be notified and given two (2) weeks to correct the situation. The Commission will have the power to remove any and all items on the lot (s) to mow and trim and return the lot to the beauty and symmetry of the grounds. (Amended Jan 2009)
