Cemetery Layout & Platting

Cemetery Planning and Development

In 1993, LJA Engineering performed an extensive topographic survey to determine the location of marked and unmarked graves at Sandhill Cemetery in Tyler County, Texas. An old country cemetery in existence since 1854, it had never been surveyed or platted. New gravesites were then platted along with a registry of all existing graves.

In addition, LJA Engineering recently completed the platting of two new mausoleums, along with the replat of an existing site for Magnolia Cemetery in Beaumont, Texas. The re-survey of the 75-acre Greenlawn Memorial Park cemetery in Groves, Texas was completed in April 1998. Platting of seven additional sections along with a color map of the entire cemetery was completed in 1999. Other cemeteries include:

  • Forest Lawn in Beaumont
  • Memory Gardens in Nederland
  • Village Mills Cemetery in Hardin County
  • Calvary Cemetery in Port Arthur
  • Oak Bluff Cemetery in Port Neches
  • Live Oak Memorial Park in Nederland
  • Del Rose Cemetery in Orange County

LJA Engineering is experienced in working with owners to maximize their investment potential by careful planning and development of their property.
