- One of the oldest forms of burial is mausoleum entombment.
- Families are choosing mausoleum entombment as an alternative to ground burial because of convenience in locating space, comfort while visiting during inclement weather; and cost.
- The purchase of a mausoleum crypt includes the space (which is the vault) and the lettering all packaged into one price, as opposed to ground burial where the grave, vault and monument must all be purchased separately.
- Pricing depends on which type of crypt space (single or companion); the level (elevation); and the location within the mausoleum.
- Many people have an aversion to being interred in the ground, so this is a popular alternative to in-ground burial.
- Cremations may also be entombed in our mausoleums.
- A niche is an individual compartment for housing cremated remains, which are generally placed in an urn.
For security reasons, the David’s Cemetery Mausoleum will be open to the general public only during the normal work day of cemetery personnel, which are Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm and on Saturday mornings and special holidays from 9 am through 5 pm. For owners of mausoleum crypts and niches, special rules and regulations for maintenance and operation of the mausoleum are available at the cemetery office. Cemetery personnel will cooperate with owners to secure maximum benefit of the advantages of the mausoleum.
For mausoleum entombment, caskets cannot exceed 7’6” in length, 2’7” in width and 2’1” in height.
