The Department of Cemeteries
Of the nearly 80 cemeteries located in Chatham County, Georgia, the Department of Cemeteries maintains five existing cemeteries which are owned and operated by the City of Savannah:
  • Colonial Park
  • Laurel Grove North
  • Laurel Grove South
  • Bonaventure
  • Greenwich

Each cemetery has a unique character and is historically significant to the City of Savannah.

Responsibilities
The main office of the Department of Cemeteries is located in Bonaventure Cemetery and a satellite office is located in Laurel Grove North. The department is responsible for:
  • Maintaining the grounds
  • Selling interment rights
  • Providing interment services
  • Maintaining vital records
  • Preserving the historical and cultural significance
  • Coordinating all activities within the cemeteries

The phrase "selling interment rights" was historically referred to as selling cemetery lots. However, cemeteries do not generally sell real estate, just the rights to be interred on it.
