In-Ground Burial

There are flat ground-level marker areas and above ground monument areas. There are many different types of markers and monuments to choose from for an in-ground burial space. A monument or marker can be placed on a space at any time. These markers and monuments are actually placed on the space before or after a burial and will not need to be disturbed or moved for the burial process.

Sections of David’s cemetery that are currently available for in-ground burials include the following:

Section G of the cemetery is designed for in-ground burial spaces with upright monuments or flat markers. You may choose and design your monument/marker here at David’s Cemetery to memorialize your space forever. This section of the cemetery surrounds David's Columbarium and Old Glory Plaza(our newest addition to the cemetery that will be home to over 1800 cremations).

Section R of the cemetery is designed for flat markers. You may choose from bronze and granite flat markers available at David’s Cemetery to memorialize your space forever. This section of the cemetery has been arranged with four garden areas as well as a variety of trees. There is no planting allowed around the flat markers.

Sections F and H of the cemetery are designed for in-ground burial spaces with upright monuments. These two sections have been arranged with shrubs and ornamental grasses. There is no permanent planting allowed in these sections, but you may plant annuals in front of the monument. Upright monuments are available at David’s Cemetery.

 

Cremation

David’s Cemetery has several options for cremations. These options include:

David’s has a beautiful Remembrance Circle/Scattering Garden. Here, ashes are scattered and a bronze name plaque is added to the obelisk granite marker for memorialization.

Cremations can be placed in a niche in one of our mausoleums. Niches can have a bronze, wood or glass door covering the front. An approved container can be placed behind the door.

Cremations can also be buried or interred in the ground. The cremation garden is in a lovely setting surrounded by flowering trees. No plantings are allowed in this section. David’s has a cremation garden which provides 24” by 24” burial spaces. These spaces can be used for a burial of one or two cremations. The cost of the spaces includes a bronze flat marker and foundation. See the price sheet for details.

Another cremation option is to bury one or two urns in a full grave space, which would permit placing an upright monument or flat marker for memorialization.

Mausoleums

David’s Cemetery currently has three mausoleums. The first mausoleum, David’s Mausoleum has indoor and outdoor crypts and was built in 1983. The second mausoleum, built in 1991, is the Memorial Mausoleum. This mausoleum is a beautiful building with space still available. It contains stained glass windows, skylights and was recently updated with new carpeting, furniture and accessories. This mausoleum has all indoor crypts which allows year-round visitation in a comfortable and inviting climate controlled area. You may choose either a single or double shuttered crypt and may select from four elegant marble corridors. With six levels to choose from, you can achieve entombment in this elegant building at a cost similar to in-ground burial. See price sheet for details.

The Community Mausoleum , built in 2008, offers both niche and crypt spaces. This mausoleum includes a Chapel and Gathering Room that can be used for funerals, after-service gatherings, community meetings and events.

Columbariums

David's Columbarium, built in 2011, is a monumental structure that is located across from the Community Mausoleum. David’s Columbarium is over 33 feet tall, covers over 1000 square feet and will be home to over 700 niches. A columbarium is defined as "a chamber or wall in which urns containing ashes are stored.

Old Glory Plaza, built in 2015, was built to memorialize members of our community, our public servants, and our beloved military. Old Glory Plaza is open to everyone, and is located directly across from David's Columbarium. It will be home to over 1800 cremations housed inside stainless steel niches covered with beautiful black granite fronts. The niches surround a ring of five 8' granite tablets. Each tablet pays tribute to one of the five branches of our military: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. At the core of Old Glory flies a majestic flag that measures 30' X 60' atop a glorious 120' tall flag pole.
