Cemeteries

Cemetery Picture

The City of Covington is pleased to have two municipal cemeteries and one mausoleum under our care:

Covington Cemetery No. 1
608 N. Columbia St.
Covington, LA

Wilson Cemeteries I and II & Garden of Pines Cemetery and Mausoleum
1400 N. Columbia St.
Covington, LA

Due to their age and steady use over the years, there are no longer any plots for sale.

According to Sec. 26-31 of the Covington Code of Ordinances, it is unlawful for anyone other than a funeral home representative to apply for a permit to open a gravesite.  Therefore, in order to bury a loved one, a representative of the funeral home in charge of burial arrangements must appear in person at Covington City Hall, 317 N. Jefferson Avenue, to secure the Cemetery Plot Opening Permit and pay a $50 fee.  If the deed to the plot cannot be located, then the Affidavit should be executed before a Notary Public and submitted to our office along with the completed permit form and fee.  Checks should be made payable to the City of Covington.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact Kelli Moore at (985) 892-1811 or (985) 898-4717.
