Anderson County, S.C.  (June 8, 2022) — Anderson County will host an Indigent Burial Service at 10 a.m. Friday morning, June 10, 2022 at the Civic Center Recycling Center, 590 Woodcrest Drive, Anderson. The public is invited to attend the service.

Indigent burials are those bodies that have gone unclaimed or funds were not available for their funeral arrangements, and are laid to rest. The County’s current indigent cemetery is at capacity. County Council and the Coroner have taken the responsibility of providing a dignified and respectful service to the underprivileged in our community.

“It’s important to have a place to be laid to rest with dignity and respect,” said Rusty Burns, County Administrator. “It is equally important to have a place to visit and to know that your loved one was provided a final resting place.”

The Anderson County Coroner’s Office has made every effort to contact the families and/or extended family members for the opportunity to receive their loved ones remains.
