Mausoleum Burial

Mausoleum Burial


The Pyramids of Egypt, the tomb of Christ and the Tajh Mahal are all Mausoleums. Many people prefer above ground entombment rather than ground burial. At Jefferson, we have 3 types of mausoleum crypts available to choose from

 

Indoor


Indoor mausoleum crypts are placed inside of mausoleum buildings throughout the cemetery. Depending on the size and location of the mausoleum crypt, a second right’s fee may be applied to add additional cremations to the space to ensure that family and loved ones are always kept together.

 

Garden


Garden mausoleums, or outdoor mausoleums, are spread throughout the cemetery’s 41 garden section and range in size, theme, and material like granite or bronzes. Our most notable Garden Mausoleums include the Thomas Jefferson Garden Mausoleum with a full sized replica of our founding father, and our newest mausoleum the Garden of Freedom featuring a replica of the Statue of Liberty.

 

Private


Private Mausoleums are individual family estates that can be either outdoor crypts or larger walk in buildings. These structures vary from a two crypt Nahan building model to a twelve crypt, Nottolini private building model with walk in design and rainbow granite. Private Mausoleums go back centuries and are the most notable features of some of the most historic cemeteries across the world.

Something to remember when considering a mausoleum crypt to other forms of interment is that purchasing a crypt is the equivalent to purchasing a grave, burial vault and bronze memorial. Mausoleum crypts vary by type and costs vary further by height from the floor and/or arrangements chosen.

Second Right’s Fee


All graves are sold with one burial right. Traditionally, single depth grave spaces hold one casket burial. However, at Jefferson Memorial each single depth grave space has the option to include one casketed burial plus one cremation. Alternatively, single grave space can include two cremations. When a second burial is to be added, a second right burial fee is incurred, thus giving you the opportunity to keep loved ones together.
