The first decision to consider is full body interment or cremation. After this decision, the next consideration is in-ground or above-ground repose of the remains.
Each cremation space will accommodate two cremations.
One full size gravesite will accommodate two cremations. A one-half in-ground grave space will also accommodate two cremations, however, the memorialization will be subject to size limitations.
A columbarium is a granite wall with compartments, called niches for cremations. Each niche will hold two cremations. Columbarium gardens are available as an above-ground option for inurnment of cremations
The Crown of Life Chapel and Mausoleum at Hope Memorial Gardens also provides niches on the exterior of the mausoleum or glass front niches within the Chapel of the mausoleum.
Full Body Interment
Each in ground gravesite will accommodate one full body and up to two cremations.
Hope Memorial Gardens gravesites are memorialized with flush headstones only. Above ground burial options are available only at the Crown of Life Chapel and Mausoleum located at Hope Memorial Gardens. Interior and exterior crypts for entombment are available. Each crypt in the mausoleum will hold one full body. A companion crypt is available to repose the remains of two individuals.
Private Family Estates enhance the traditional beauty of both cemeteries. A family has the opportunity to design and purchase a private mausoleum designated only for burials of their choice at Hope Memorial Gardens. A family counselor is available to meet and discuss this option with you.
Granite and Bronze memorials are permitted at each location. Each section in the cemetery may have different memorial restrictions. Caring Christian personnel are available to assist you at each location with the process of choosing and designing your final tribute to your loved one. Planning ahead by designing your own memorial is a loving gift for your family.
Granite benches are another beautiful tribute to the legacy a loved one has left behind. All granite benches are placed at the discretion of the planning committee with special consideration of the family’s wishes.
Trees are available for purchase and dedication throughout the cemeteries. Trees are placed at the discretion of the planning committee with special consideration of the family’s wishes.
