My Packing List for Cemetery Trips

31 March 2010 7:00 AM Posted by Brenda L.
I am a list maker from way back. I make to-do lists, grocery lists, packing lists, you name it lists. Lists help me to stay organized and I enjoy being organized, just ask my family! I thought I would share one of my lists with you, my cemetery visit packing list. Here is what I take when I visit a cemetery:


  • list of gravesites I need to visit

  • digital camera

  • notepad and pencil or pen

  • cemetery map

  • supplies to help see the gravestones better: spray bottle of water, grass clippers, small whisk broom

  • old shoes

What do you take?

    Judy, I agree with the seat thing. My knees aren't what they use to be. Brenda

    Pack your energy also. Brenda, don't know if you saw my piece on cemeteries (3 part), but here is the link. http://lifefromtheroots.blogspot.com/search/label/Cemetery
    Boy, I can't wait to go to a cemetery, maybe today, now that the weather has changed. Thanks for your post.

    A small, bright torch. A weathered inscription is sometimes easier to decipher if you shine light on it from different angles.

    Thank you Judy for the great idea. I will be adding that to my bag.
