Burial Options
47 °

We have a variety of lovely settings and a range of burial options including mausoleums, ground burial, cremation niches, and lawn crypts available at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. Any of the burial options can be purchased as needed, or more ideally, as part of our Pre-Need Program.

Ground Burial

ground

A space for ground burial can vary in size from an individual space to a family, church or private estate. A family estate is traditionally set apart from other plots, creating a distinctive setting for future generations to visit. Individual, companion and family plots are available throughout Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens.

Cremation

Cremation is not an end in itself, but merely one means of preparing a body for burial and memorialization. At Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, we offer a range of options for those who choose cremation, including placing the remains in a memorial urn within a mausoleum or wall niche and burial in a ground burial space. We also offer options to consider when one person chooses cremation and the other does not.

Lawn crypts

Lawn crypts (concrete and steel outer containers pre-set in the ground) are the perfect compromise between ground burial and mausoleums, allowing you to combine the beauty of nature with the mausoleum environment. Essentially, lawn crypt interment is a one- or two-level mausoleum in the ground. Although individual lawn crypts are available, they are frequently double-depth in order to accommodate both husband and wife.

Green Burial

A natural burial ground, also known as a green burial ground or an eco-cemetery, is a cemetery where the remains are returned to the earth in an environmentally sensitive way. It is an environmentally sustainable alternative to existing funeral practices. Green Burial is the oldest, most natural and least ecologically disruptive form of burial. The practice has been revived for those who choose to live an environmentally sustainable life, and prefer to leave the earth that way as well. http://www.greenburials.org
