Thank you to Sandy Jackson for contributing this receipt for payment to Willow Glen Cemetery for the burial plot he purchased in 1937 when his wife, Gertrude died. The total amount paid was $35 for 100 square feet of space, which seems way lower than today's burial costs, but according to dollartimes.com, $35 in 1937 was equivalent to $591 in 2016. It's still a fraction of today's burial expenses! Minimal services are $3000 and up.
