What Is the Size of a Standard Grave?

According to the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association, a conventional grave measures 2 1/2 feet wide by 8 feet in length. These measurements include space for a monument or headstone.

The International Cemetery, Cremation, and Funeral Association additionally recommends cemeteries allow a set number of 3-foot by 9-foot and 4-foot by 10-foot spaces to enable burials of individuals who may require a lot larger than the conventional dimensions. For hygiene and health concerns, the standard grave depth is 6 feet. “How Much Land Does a Man Need?” by Leo Tolstoy advises “six feet from head to toe.”
