 Ground Burial and Entombment
 Most people are familiar with the concept of burial, or interment, but may not be aware of the variety of options that are often available. Many cemeteries offer one or more of the following:
• Ground burial: burial of the casket below ground.
• Mausoleum: a large building that provides above ground entombments.
• Single crypts accommodating one person
• Companion crypt permits one or two
entombments side-by-side
• Private family mausoleum: a small structure that provides above-ground entombment of, on average, two to twelve decedents.
• Companion crypt: permits two interments or entombments side-by-side.
• Private family estate: a small section of a cemetery, usually bordered by gates, shrubbery, or other dividers, that allows for ground burial of several members of the same family.
If Casket Entombment
• Would you like other members of the family to be with your loved one in the future? This determines the size of the crypt.
• What type of memorial package would you prefer?
