Does anyone know if it would be allowed to bury a family pet alongside a loved one, each in his own plot? Thanks!

Would the cemetary allow it? Most cemetaries are for people or pets, not both.

Depends on the local laws. In Greene Co., Missouri, the county owns all cemeteries, which are only to be used for people. However, one funeral home has obtained a licence to bury pets on their property (they own several acres). Cemeteries are a local matter, so you'll have to ask at your county courthouse.

Man's Best Friend To The End: Resting In Peace Beside Your Pet
....
Across the country, there are cemeteries for people, and cemeteries for pets. But in the past few years, some states have passed laws allowing cemeteries to create sections where pets and humans can be buried next to each other. Virginia is about to become the latest state allowing cemeteries to designate sections where pets can be buried next to their beloved owners.
....
Virginia joins a growing number of states, including Pennsylvania and New York, where cemeteries are allowed to create special pet-human burial sections
....
"Just like for humans, they're going to have to be in an outer burial container, because we got to maintain the appearance of the graves forever," he says. "There are pet caskets; there's companies out there that we use that have caskets designed for different sizes of [animals]. Primarily it's cats and dogs that we're working with."
