How long does it take a grave to settle?

It can take about six months or more before a grave will settle. The ground is prone to wash out during heavy rains. We understand it can be concerning to see washed out spaces around a loved ones grave. Please call our office and notify us so we can have our cemetery crew go and fill in any spaces to assist in the settling process.
