When I visited the grave of John and Anna Hoey in 2005, I obtained a copy of the cemetery record for the lot.

The record indicates that the lots were purchased by John W. and Anna M. Hoey, residing at 18 Christine Street, Worcester, MA. They purchased the property on 08 Jan 1962, apparently on the occasion of the death of their son James, who was buried two days later in the adjacent lot. They paid $350 on 16 Mar 1963. The property included 2 spaces and 2 burial spaces in a 6 x 8 area, suggesting that the burials were made one deep.
John and Anna Hoey also purchased the next lot, number 682, at the same time.
A flat marker was installed in May 1994 by Rex Monuments.
