Cremation burial is one of the options most frequently selected by our families. A common misconception of cremation is that the remains must be scattered or kept in a personal container by loved ones. In reality, cremated remains may be laid to rest in much the same manner as a traditional burial, creating a permanent legacy of your loved one.
Cremated remains may be placed in a traditional gravesite, with memorial, headstone, or other memoralization options. If both are cremated, couples may share one gravesite with separate burial urns. Arrangements must be made in advance to accommodate this option.
Just as our mausoleum is used for caskets, our columbarium is used to place cremation urns in an above-ground structure that provides lasting protection. A personalized memorial is placed on the front of the niche. Both individual niches and companion niches are available.
In addition to our original columbarium, niches are also featured in two of our newest gardens - the Butterfly Garden and the Garden of Angels. These gardens are easily accessible, with peaceful resting benches as well as shaded areas.
We have a wide variety of urns for your selection that can be personalilzed in many ways. We would be happy to schedule a visit to our showroom, or you may contact us for details.
Families may choose to have a graveside service as remains are placed in their final resting place, whether in-ground or columbarium. This service may be held in conjunction with a memorial service, or as a private time for family and close friends.
Ridgeview Memorial Park Pavilion
The pavilion outside the columbarium offers a comfortable, private area to gather for a remembrance. Many families combine the memorial service with a reception in this location. Its outdoor venue is especially appropriate for families wanting a less formal setting.
