Cemeteries

Most cemeteries have the same general purpose, however there are several distinct types of cemeteries that you can choose from. Depending on what type of burial you are looking at, you may come across some of the following types.

Monumental cemetery: A monumental cemetery is the traditional style of cemetery where headstones or other monuments made of marble or granite rise vertically above the ground. There are countless different types of designs for headstones, ranging from very simple to large and complex.

Lawn cemetery: A lawn cemetery is where each grave is marked with a small commemorative plaque that is placed horizontally at the head of the grave at ground level. Families can still be involved in the design and the information contained on the plaque, however, in most cases the plaques are a standard design.

Mausoleum: A mausoleum is an external free-standing building constructed as a monument enclosing the interment space or burial chamber of a deceased person or people. A mausoleum may be considered a type of tomb or the tomb may be considered to be within the mausoleum. Perhaps the most famous mausoleum is India's Taj Mahal.

Columbarium: Columbarium walls are generally reserved for cremated remains. While cremated remains can be kept at home by families or scattered somewhere significant to the deceased, a columbarium provides friends and family a place to come to mourn and visit. Because Columbarium walls do not take up a lot of space, they can be a less costly alternative to a burial plot.

Natural cemetery: A natural cemetery, also known as eco-cemeteries or green cemeteries, is a new style of cemetery set aside for natural, or “green burials”. Green burials are motivated by the desire to be environmentally conscious. Although green burials can be performed at any type of cemetery, they are usually done in a natural woodland area. Conventional markings such as headstones are generally replaced with a tree or a bush, or a placement of a natural rock.

"Thank you so much for the respect you showed my mother, Shirley. The family is most appreciative of the care you took of her and all the family. We so appreciate you arranging burial at Fort Logan, So she could be with my father. The service there was very appropriate and thoughtful." - D. H.
