Formerly, only nobility and the affluent were able to take advantage of this method.  However, since industrial revolution, the mausoleum became more affordable and popular among many from all walks of life.  The stigma we would like to dispel is that the mausoleum is for the elite.  Our cemetery offers many affordable options with the community mausoleum as the most popular of all mausoleum options.   

We encourage you to discuss this memorialization option with one of our experienced counselors.  Our cemetery plans to build new mausolea due to the number of requests for this method.  Contact us for availability and pricing for existing structures and be sure to inquire on pre-construction pricing.  

Mausolea offer many options such as True Companion and Side-by-Side entombment.  The crypt is fully enclosed and permanently sealed once the remains are entombed.  Structures and enclosed crypts are reinforced with steel to ensure remains are protected from the elements and changes in the earth.  

The mausoleum allows you an option that is above-ground, affordable and convenient for your family to visit and honor your legacy.  We encourage you to visit our cemetery to help you decide on preferences such as whether you would like to be entombed at heaven, eye, heart or prayer levels.  We also offer an option to attach a vase for flowers.  Our experienced counselors will be happy to walk you through these decisions and the complete pre-planning process.  

Contact us for more information on Mausoleum options and pre-planning with us.  

The mausoleum has been a method of burial since ancient times.   A mausoleum encloses a burial chamber, such as a crypt or a niche, either wholly above ground or within a burial vault below a structure. This contains the body or bodies, often within sarcophagi or interment niches.   

The most commonly found type of mausoleum in today's cemeteries around the world is the community mausoleum.  Our four mausolea include both crypts for full body entombment and multiple columbarium with niches for cremated remains.  Please contact us to inquire on availability within any community mausoleum.

Modern mausolea may also act as columbaria (a type of mausoleum for cremated remains) with additional cinerary urn niches, further described on the Cremation page.  Structures may be either external or internal or both and vary widely in size.  The Private Estates page features private mausoleum structures which may house the remains of single or multiple people. 

Please contact us for more information on any of these options and the pre-planning process.
