Seriously, best option is to offer up a high commission to someone who either already sells these things or is usually in the process like funeral homes. A funeral director already has the experience of people not really batting an eye when outrageous numbers get thrown around because of the emotions running at the time. They are probably your best bet to get these things offloaded at high prices.

I'd check the adjacent plots and see if any relatives are interested in buying them from you.
My parents sold a couple plots in New York state a few years back. Really got taken for a ride...the cemetery basically required sales to go through itself. These are certainly not investments, not until someone starts a robust secondary market for grave sites.
I'm in the same mess. Trying to sell these plots has been a nightmare. They are in both my name and my ex's name. He is in NH and I am in MA. The plots have a clause where if my children died before age eighteen their would be four plots instead of two. If he dies first and his new wife wants him buried in her family plot then I am the survivor and I get both plots. It is the same if I die first and my family buries me in my family plot then he gets both. Working with the cemetery is also fun. First the original papers have to be found, plots ordered twenty years ago before the cemetery was finished. The cemetery will buy back at the original cost. They were a lot cheaper 20 years ago! Try selling in paper. Read the want ads at least 10 to 20 people selling each day. My ex will sign anything he just wants half. The buyer, my ex and I have to sign the papers at the same time at the cemetery. Five years still looking for a buyer. I am giving them to my kids.

Thanks for the idea about talking to a funeral director. He may not buy them but might know how to sell the plots.

TRADE? This should become a thread about creative things to trade these for.
Crematory services, coffins, get your own funeral paid for (hopefully far, far) in advance, etc..
+1 for selling them together: like sports tickets, side-by-side increases value.
