A Guide to Cemetery Memorialization Options
After the loss of a loved one, your family might decide that interment in a cemetery is an appropriate choice. There are several respectful ways to honor your loved one with a personalized memorial . This site within a peaceful memorial park provides a gathering place for family and friends to celebrate the life of your loved one.
Traditional In-Ground Burial
Many families prefer traditional in-ground burial. Your loved one’s burial site will be marked with a beautiful upright headstone or flat grave marker. Cemeteries often devote much of their land to sections for traditional in-ground burials. You can expect serene, well-groomed landscaping to surround your loved one’s final resting place. Ask the cemetery representative about special burial sections, such as areas for veterans, people of certain faiths, and members of fraternal organizations like the Masons. Your family may wish to purchase multiple burial plots at the same time. Eventually, close family members can share the same hallowed ground.
Private Family Estates
Private family estates are a popular choice for families who wish to remain as close in death as they were in life. Each area is designated for one family and can accommodate multiple burials, including both cremated remains and traditional burials.
Although spouses often choose to rest side-by-side within companion sites, there is another option. Lawn crypts are double-depth burial sites that accommodate two decedents . Not only are lawn crypts a thoughtful way to demonstrate the closeness of the relationship, but they are also a cost-effective option.
Another option is interment above the ground. Your family may wish to consider making arrangements for a private mausoleum, which is a graceful, permanent structure within a memorial park. Private mausoleums reflect the legacy of the whole family.
