Crypt entombment is a type of burial designed to hold casketed or cremated remains of the body usually in an above ground structure.
The interior of the mausoleum chapel provides warmth and comfort to those paying respect and there is truly a feeling of peace and beauty. The indoor mausoleum is very modern—and yet historical—and offers both a combination of comfort to the living and dignity with honor for the remembered. Our interior mausoleums have chairs or benches for people to sit, reflect, pray and remember. In addition, our indoor mausoleums are climate-controlled for your comfort.
The garden mausoleum features crypts that are shaded and protected by patio roof extensions overlooking beautifully landscaped courtyards and religious icons. In this setting, the beauty of nature is combined with mausoleum entombment. When garden crypts are used, chapel services may be held inside the chapel mausoleum in the event of inclement weather.
