Cremation Information

Do you have spaces for above ground cremation burial?
Yes, Lawn Croft has a selection of cremation niches. The urn or rigid container is entombed within the niche and an engraving into the granite front is made as the memorial. These niches are available at The Mausoleum, both inside and outside the building.

Can a cremation urn be buried with an existing burial?
Generally we allow one casket burial and two cremation urns (single depth) or two casket burials and four cremation urns (double depth) to be interred in one grave.

What kind of cremation urn is required?
Lawn Croft requires a non-biodegradable urn or rigid container for cremations that are interred and an urn vault to protect the urn is required. These may be purchased through Lawn Croft or your funeral director. For entombment in a cremation niche there is no special requirement.

Burial Information

Is a burial vault required?
Lawn Croft requires a burial vault for all casket burials so as to reduce settlement of the ground. These burial vaults are generally supplied through the funeral director.

Can I pre-pay the cost of the grave or crypt opening?
Yes. You should discuss this with your funeral director when making pre-arrangements.

Memorials and Monuments

How many memorials can be placed on each grave?
We allow one 24" x 12" flush memorials to be placed on each grave. Please refer to our Rules and Regulations for specifics.

Do you sell these memorials?
We offer flush bronze memorials for installation in Lawn Croft sections designated for bronze. We can also assist you in selecting flush and upright granite memorials and monuments where so designated.

Who installs these memorials?
Lawn Croft always installs flush memorials and pours the concrete foundations for upright monuments. This is to ensure proper placement and quality of work. The company where you purchased your monument is responsible for the installation of the monument itself.

Can an upright monument be installed on any grave?
Upright monuments are only allowed on lots so designated and where the right and privilege to have a monument has been purchased. These are always multiple grave (at least two graves) lots and are located in specific sections of Lawn Croft. Please feel free to contact our office to verify your options.

Can I purchase a memorial through an outside source?
Yes, but it is best that you check with our office to be certain that the memorial meets our specific criteria and will be allowed to be installed on the grave. Lawn Croft installs most foundations. Please refer to our Rules and Regulations for specifics.
