Terms and conditions for all requests for the burial of the Muslim deceased are listed below. They are for the mutual protection of volunteers, staff, visitors, and our beloved dead, whose remains rest in our cemetery. They are also meant to serve the best interest of our cemetery, in the hope of being able to provide the service for as long as we have the burial lot and necessary resources available.

1. BURIAL REQUEST:

The party requesting burial for a loved one must indicate agreement with the Terms & Conditions by selecting and accepting on the Burial request form. This agreement is required prior to the beginning of preparations for the gravesite. 

Burial in an FMC is considered a Muslim service. The Muslim service is the burial of

the remains (full body) of a person in a Muslim cemetery and the future upkeep of the cemetery. FMC is a Waqf and Non-perpetual Cemetery and there is no transfer of ownership of property (lot). An FMC representative will authorize personnel to prepare for a burial plot. Cemetery grounds are consecrated and are for human remains only.

2. PLOTS:

Plots are defined as follows: A single plot for remains is 96 x 40 inches. 

3. ASSIGNING OF PLOTS:

Plots will be assigned by FMC administrators within only the currently open section and in sequential order. The cemetery will maintain section opening and closing based on management guidance without any preference or favors. 

4. PREPARING AND CLOSING THE GRAVE:

FMC has a contract with “3B Grave Service” for the opening and closing of graves. The FMC reserves the right to choose the gravediggers, and the operators are the only persons permitted to open and close graves.

9. REGULAR MAINTENANCE – UPKEEP OF PLOTS:

The FMC does regular maintenance within the cemetery. The volunteers and paid staff that do this work are all required to abide by the Terms & Conditions outlined in this document. The FMC commits, through volunteers, staff, and family support, to maintain the plots and common areas according to reasonable criteria, availability of resources and weather conditions. Given the availability of resources and weather conditions, the grave site will be properly mowed and trimmed (around the monument). In the case of subsidence, the gravesite will be filled, levelled, and restored to a flat, well-groomed, lawn-like surface. Note that rain may challenge the ability to maintain the graves at the highest of standards at all times. A family member will be contacted should any damage occur to the grave marker or monument. Plots that are found in conditions that do not adhere to the Terms & Conditions outlined and have obstructions to equipment may not receive the care available until the situation is rectified.
