Bio Photo Random Item #5: Grave Markers

The thought of a grave marker for a departed relative getting vandalized or stolen is enough to make someone shudder, but there can be some relief in knowing such situations are covered by home insurance.

"You hear those stories every so often of cemeteries being vandalized," Hackett says. "Insurance would cover losses for personal property items from theft, vandalism, or malicious mischief that might happen to a grave marker."

Insured homeowners should know that mausoleums also fall into this category.

"I think it's good that it's available and people should know," Hackett says.

What the HO 3 Policy says: The insurance company will pay up to $5,000 for grave markers, including mausoleums, on or away from the "residence premises" for loss caused by occurrences covered in the policy. Because they are considered personal property, grave markers are covered by home insurance "anywhere in the world."

Thank you very much for all your time and efforts and photos. Great job!!
Have a great day

RE: Wm Zimmerman
I was shocked to find him. I knew that there wasn't an obituary printed here, so I just winged it and lucked out. Thanks for adding it!
Thank you again for all the hard work you have put into documenting so many graves.

Thanks for pointing out the duplicate Hobie Alter memorial and the excellent photo of Hobie's tribute. Find A Grave admin will eventually merge or delete one of the memorials.

RE: No can do...
Thank you for making the edits I requested. Don's place of death of Florida will be okay as is. I understand the problem. You did good with his memorial. His sister especially appreciates the work you have done for him. She will also get me a photo of him which I will add later. Thank you for all the work you have done.
