FAQ:

Q: Do you allow cremation burials?

A: Yes, cremated remains may be buried in a cemetery plot either with another set of cremains (2 per plot) or on top of an existing casket burial.

Q: What about cremains in the mausoleum?

A: We have several options. We offer a indoor, glass front columbarium in which to put an urn by itself or with a picture and/or other small memorabilia. They come single or double size.  We offer outdoor granite front niches which can be engraved and have room for two cremains in urns.

Q: We are a married couple and I want to be cremated and he wants to be entombed in a casket in the mausoleum. What do we do?

A: A single crypt in the mausoleum can hold one casket and one cremains. The outside can be engraved with both names.

Q: Do we require cremains that are being buried to be in a concrete vault?

A: No. However we DO require a vault for a casket burial.

Q: When can we have a headstone put in the cemetery?      

A: It can be put in pre-need (before a death has occurred) or anytime after the burial.

A: You must purchase your monument from a fully insured monument company(we must have their insurance information on file) and they will install the monument after all fees are paid and we have approved the sizes.
