In this questionnaire, we conducted a survey on the theme of “worries about graves in old age.” We found that people who own graves have different attitudes depending on whether there is a successor or not, and by age. In particular, it turns out that people who have no heirs are worried about whether they should continue to maintain the graves or put them away. It was a questionnaire survey that could be read that people in their 50s began to be clearly aware of the grave closing.
Regarding the issue of graves after retirement, I think that the future will be determined by various factors such as the manager’s health condition, family structure, economics, and values. All Stone Association will continue to strive to provide memorial service culture and accurate cemetery and tombstone information so that we can meet the diverse needs of graves that correspond to the lifestyles of individuals and families.
