Above-Ground Entombment Options

Your loved one’s funeral service and memorial should reflect his or her preferences and unique personality. If your loved one was averse to a traditional burial, consider an above-ground entombment. Above-ground entombment is ideal for those who did not like the thought of being buried in the earth. It is also ideal for family members who desire a permanent place to visit their loved one’s remains and reflect upon their cherished memories.

One type of above-ground entombment option is an indoor mausoleum. You can put your loved one to his or her final rest in a climate-controlled crypt. Indoor mausoleums also include cremation options. For some families, staying physically close to each other after death is ideal. These families may wish to consider a private family estate. Family members will have crypts and urn interment niches close to each other.
