Traditional, Below-Ground Burial Spaces

Burris MonumentOne large benefit to burial is that it creates a physical, permanent space to visit. Grieving family members often find comfort in having specific place to remember their loved ones. Also, choosing underground burial is still widely accepted within different religions.

The traditional form of ground burial with memorialization, such as a headstone or marker, provides both practicality and beauty. Personalization of a headstone or marker can be simple or complex as you like.

Traditional underground burial spaces can be purchased as individual, double and even many times family or estate plots. It’s best to check about possible restrictions as you move forward with planning ahead.

It’s important to remember that all veterans are entitled to a free burial in a national cemetery and a grave marker, as well as other benefits. Don’t hesitate to ask for details.

Alternative and Contemporary Options

Alternative and Contemporary OptionsIn recent years, the amount of memorialization options available have grown significantly. A cemetery is one of the few places where you can feel the connection between the dead and the living. The incorporation of nature, beauty and modern alternatives within cemeteries helps achieve that.

Contemporary options are available with both burial and cremation. Some options within a cemetery include scattering cremated remains in a “Scattering Garden,” purchasing a memorial bench or a monubench (half monument, half bench) for your ground plot, naming a stone or brick in memory of a loved one (that makes up a walkway or garden path), and much more… Contact our cemetery specialists to learn more about the options at Crown Hill Funeral Home & Cemetery.

 

Modern and Permanent Memorial Markers

Modern and Permanent Memorial MarkersA Columbarium holds cremated remains in individual chambers, called cremation niches. Niches can hold urns as well as family mementos.

A large benefit to a columbarium niche is the flexibility it gives. You can choose to place some cremated remain in the columbarium, creating a permanent resting place to honor the deceased, while also allowing some of the cremated remains to be elsewhere, possibly scattered or placed in a home.

Choosing a columbarium is a simple and cost-effective alternative for below-ground interment.

Traditional, Above-Ground Burial Spaces

Sister HuggingBoth indoor and outdoor mausoleums are shared spaces where you can purchase a single, double or family crypt, together in one building. Private family mausoleums may also be available, and at times more cost effective.

One main difference between a below-ground burial plot and an above-ground mausoleum is the environment impact. Mausoleums use less land, since they are stand-alone buildings, and are more attractive to those more environmentally-conscious.

Most mausoleums are meant specifically as interment chambers for deceased bodies. However, it’s important to note that many mausoleums also offer columbarium options (for cremated remains).
