If you are looking to purchase a lot(s) in the Lake Ripley Cemetery, Beth and the City staff will be glad to assist you. We currently have available lots in two areas, referred to as Division 7 and Division 8.
Division 7 is a beautiful area with trees in and around all the burial sites. All stones must be flush to the ground in this division.
Division 8 is our newest area in the Cemetery. It is a sun-filled, grassy area surrounded by bushes and trees. This division is more spacious, allowing for upright monuments to be placed if one so chooses.
Computerized maps for both Division 7 and 8 are available for viewing on the "Maps & Records" page, as well as Divisions 5 & 6.
Lake Ripley Cemetery is now home to a beautiful Columbarium section located within Division 8. There are both single (one urn) and double (two urn) niches available in all 4 of the columbariums.
Arrangements for burials can be made by faxing information to the City Hall at (320) 693-9134 or contacting Beth and City staff at (320) 693-7201. We like to have at least a 2 day advance notice of burials in spring, summer and fall and 3 to 4 day notice if possible in the winter so snow removal and ground preparations can be taken care of. We arrange burials Monday through Saturday.
