Around the entire base of each monument there shall be laid a strip of concrete six inches in width, even with the surface of the ground and at least six inches in thickness.  The purpose of this is to maintain the general beauty of the cemetery and allow the mowing machines to cut the grass as close as possible.

COMMON QUESTIONS

What is a Mausoleum?  A mausoleum is an above-ground structure for the entombment of human remains.  Mausoleums have been used for hundreds of years.  Modern building methods permit construction of enduring beautiful mausoleums at prices affordable to nearly everyone.  A crypt space is where a casket is placed.  The space is dry, vented, clean and safely sealed.

What are the advantages of Mausoleum Entombment?  Above-ground entombment provides protection against the harsh elements of the earth associated with below-ground burial.  The mausoleum chapel service can be dignified and protected from the weather.  Costs such as grave stones and concrete vaults connected with below-ground burials are eliminated.

Does Mausoleum Entombment cost more than below-ground?  Costs can actually be less than below-ground burial.  Entombment fees are less because of lower labor costs.  The cost of concrete vaults and grave stones is eliminated.

The cemetery will provide all lettering or crypt plates on the crypt or niche fronts to ensure uniformity.  A vase will also be provided.  Caution should be used in selecting artificial flowers as some dyes can run and deface the crypt or niche front.  Avoid use of sand or gravel in vase, Styrofoam is suggested.  Glass or breakable containers are not allowed.  No arrangements, flags, decals, etc, are allowed to be attached in any manner to a crypt or niche front.
