Only you can decide what is best for your family.
Traditional Burial Options are available at all Diocesan Cemeteries in either monument lots or shrine graves. Monument lots, varying in grave numbers are sold as a unit in certain sections of the cemetery and allow one upright monument to be installed on the lot. Shrine sections generally have a central shrine or feature and each grave is memorialized by a lawn-level bronze marker.
Lawn Crypts provide burial space for two in a pre-installed, double depth concrete chamber. Lawn crypts allow a family to provide for the majority of their cemetery needs at an affordable package price: burial space, outer container and lawn-level bronze memorial with vase. Lawn Crypts are available at Queen of All Saints Cemetery and Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
Community Mausoleums offer a number of options to meet the preferences and budgets of those families that prefer above ground entombment. The price of a mausoleum crypt can compare favorably with the total cost of ground burial. Cemetery of the Holy Rood, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery and Queen of All Saints Cemetery have community mausoleums.
Family Heritage Lots can accommodate either a private family mausoleum or in-ground burial spaces. Custom landscaping and distinctive memorialization is available on these estate lots.
Cremation Urn Columbariums are specially designed for families choosing cremation. Our cemeteries offer a variety of cremation niche space for inurnment at our community mausoleums.
