How does one arrange to be buried in Pere Lachaise Cemetery?

Jump to last reply

Let me hasten to say I am not asking for myself, but when we visited the cemetery last October I noticed that while it was extremely crowded, there were a sprinkling of what appeared to be new monuments. Just curious on what criteria is used to decide who gets admitted and who goes to the catacombs. Is it money? Influence? Bribery? Fame?

I asked a Frenchman, and he told me, tongue in cheek, that the high walls, fences and gates around the place were necessary because, "People are just dying to get in."
