Cremation is a popular, and growing, alternative to traditional burial or entombment. For many people, cremation is not complete until your life has been memorialized with a bronze marker or name plate.
At Greenlawn Memorial Gardens in Chesapeake we offer a number of dignified cremation options, including:
- Cremation Bench: These (also called a memory bench) are a unique way to memorialize a loved one and safely harbor their remains. Select engraving is included.
- Columbariums: These are small free-standing buildings for the respectful storage and protection of urns. A bronze nameplate is included.
- Niches: In select mausoleums these allow for the placement of most urns. A bronze nameplate is included.
- Ground Burial: We have a cremation garden where you can bury ashes in a small grave site. A cremation vault is required. This method allows for a bronze marker of the customer’s choice to be purchased.
If only one member of a couple wishes to be cremated, a single grave or a single standard mausoleum crypt can be purchased along with a second burial right to allow both to be buried in the same place.
Greenlawn Memorial Gardens does not allow scattering of ashes over existing grave sites.
We have many designs and sizes of bronze markers to choose from. A few of the options are shown below.
