The Town of Wendell maintains the Greenmount Cemetery, which is located on Industrial Drive near Academy Street. To purchase a grave site at this cemetery, please contact the Planning Department at (919) 365-4448.
The cost of a plot for individuals who live inside the corporate limits of the Town is $1,200, and $2,400, for individuals outside the corporate limits. Each plot includes two grave spots. There is also a $600 monument deposit which must be paid at the time of plot purchase. The monument deposit is held by the Town until a monument is placed. At that time you may request a refund. The Town is now selling plots in new section B.
Anyone wishing to purchase a plot in the Greenmount Cemetery should be prepared to provide the following information:

- Mailing Address where the cemetery deed should be mailed

- All grave markers in the new section of the cemetery shall be ground level unless otherwise specified by section 8-82.
