Ground Burial Options
All Catholic Cemeteries locations are blessed with beautifully landscaped grounds, prayer gardens, and shrine sections. These features offer a sense of peace to all visitors while paying tribute to those who have been laid to rest. Each cemetery offers a selection of ground interment options.
Flat bronze marker graves
Ground burial is available in flat marker graves. A flat marker grave is a grave where a bronze marker is set flush to the ground with a granite base. It is a single grave that can accommodate a maximum of two interments. These flat bronze marker graves are located in Shrine sections featuring beautiful statues surrounded by carefully maintained flower gardens.
Upright Monument Lots
Upright Monument Lots are another ground interment option. There are single, double, triple and quad grave lots which can accommodate upright monuments.
- A Single Monument Lot is a grave lot permitting an upright monument, which may contain one interment. If more that one interment is permitted, the first interment must be placed extra deep.
- A Double Monument lot is a two grave lot permitting an upright monument, which may contain a maximum of four interments.
- A Triple Monument lot is a three grave lot permitting an upright monument, which may contain a maximum of six interments.
- A Quad Monument lot is a four grave lot permitting an upright monument, which may contain a maximum of eight interments.
A burial vault is a protective outer container for the casket. Many families select a burial vault for the peace of mind that it provides. A lined burial vault provides long- lasting protection needed to resist elements, including water, and weight from heavy equipment over time. The burial vault also protects the casket from settling and keeps the ground intact, thus preserving the beauty of the cemetery.
A selection of burial vaults is available for purchase in the cemetery offices.
