Mausoleums originate in Catholic tradition and practise from the burial of Our Savior. Scripture tells us that Joseph of Arimathea took the body of Jesus, wrapped it in a shroud and put him in a tomb which had been hewn in the stone. (Luke 23: 52-54). This custom flourished in the early Christian Church in the catacombs. Today, a mausoleum is a building that contains a number of crypts and niches for the entombment of the deceased. A crypt space is prepared for the entombment of human remains in a mausoleum and a niche is a space designed for the entombment of cremated remains.
Crypt fronts are made from polished marble or granite. Memorialization is provided in the form of bronze lettering or inscribing of granite depending on the mausoleum. Crypt fronts can be personalized with a photo of the deceased and an epitaph. Memorial lights are available on all crypt fronts.
Each mausoleum offers a selection of entombment options. Most mausoleums are built to accommodate four, five and sometimes six crypt levels. Our mausoleums offer a number of crypt styles to choose from, priced to meet your wishes and budget.
Mausoleum burial provides families with the option of year-around visitation, regardless of the weather, in a beautiful and inspirational setting.
For families who wish to ensure spaces for future generations, family rooms are also available.
