From its inception, Beaverdale Memorial Park has strived to meet the needs of the community. As a non-sectarian cemetery we serve families of all faiths and beliefs. We recognize the changing attitudes and needs of individuals and families. We are proud to offer a wide range of burial options that match the financial resources and personal preferences of all families. These include: traditional burial, entombment (above-ground burial) and the memorialization of cremated remains. We are also able to offer assistance to families in the selection of appropriate memorials to celebrate their loved one's life.
Traditional Burial — Beaverdale Memorial Park offers a wide selection of grave space. A family may choose burial rights in the Bronze Sections where the appropriate tribute is a flush bronze memorial and where any number of spaces can be selected together. We also have available traditional lots where the memorial is an upright granite monument. These are available in multiples of two or more burial spaces. A flush memorial may also be placed on each of these monument section graves.
Entombment (above-ground burial) — The Mausoleum at Beaverdale is the first and only community mausoleum in a non-sectarian cemetery serving the greater New Haven community. Families have a wide selection of crypts (entombment spaces) to choose from creating diverse pricing options. An inscription is engraved into the granite crypt front as a memorial.
Cremations — Beaverdale offers many choices for cremated remains. Families may select one of our niches located in the mausoleum or they may choose traditional earth burial of the remains in either a standard grave or in our urn garden. No matter the choice, we can assist in the selection of a proper memorial.
Urn Garden — As part of the landscaping at the entrance to the mausoleum, the Urn Garden offers a peaceful, dignified option for remembering a loved one who has been cremated. Two urns may be interred in each grave and a customized flush bronze memorial is placed celebrating their lives.
Every life is worthy of remembering and the one method that insures that they will not be forgotten is a memorial installed within a cemetery. At Beaverdale these memorials vary from an upright monument to a beautiful bronze memorial, from a personalized inscription within the mausoleum to a flush granite grave marker. The appropriate memorial is determined by the location within Beaverdale of the final resting place. We are always available to assist you with the selection of a memorial that leaves behind a meaningful representation of that individual who was so close to you.
Bronze Memorials — Many of the grave sites at Beaverdale are designated for memorializing with a flush bronze memorial. Follow this link to view a few of the designs that we offer. These bronze memorials are customized with up to 6 words of endearment, full name and full dates. An emblem or two may also be added. We also have other designs on display at our office as well as illustrated in brochures that can be mailed to you. Costs are listed on the Prices page on this website.
Upright Monuments — In a few selective areas within Beaverdale an upright monument is permitted on a family lot. Please contact our office to confirm if a monument may be erected as a memorial upon your lot. We will be able to assist you in the selection and design options.
Flush Granite Memorials — In other areas within the cemetery a flush granite marker is the appropriate memorial. As with monuments please contact us to confirm your options as we are always available to assist you with the design and creation of a fitting memorial.
Mausoleum Inscription — Memorials for mausoleum crypts and cremation niches involve an inscription cut into the granite fronts. These engravings can be customized to meet your desires. Again, we are prepared to assist you in this very personal decision. Costs for these memorials are also listed on the Prices page of this website.
Mausoleum Vases — Floral vases elegantly cast in bronze and permanently attached to the granite front are available. These vases will accommodate a bouquet of artificial or silk flowers, becoming an integral part of the memorial. Even when not in use, the simple, dignified design will only add to the beauty of the inscription.
Grave Vases — Beaverdale in pleased to provide cemetery vases for your fresh cut flower bouquets at no cost to you. These may be secured just outside the entrance to our office any time you visit. Simply place the vase and bouquet on the grave. During our normal maintenance cycle we will remove all wilted decorations and recycle the vases.
