Burial & Cremation
Unfortunately, state law does not allow for a cemetery to accept pre-payment of services. You should discuss this with your funeral director when making pre-arrangements.
Beaverdale requires a burial vault for all casket burials so as to reduce settlement of the ground. These burial vaults are generally supplied through the funeral director.
Beaverdale requires a non-biodegradable urn or container for cremations that are interred. Many families will also choose to utilize an urn vault to protect the urn. These may be purchased through Beaverdale or your funeral director. For entombment in a cremation niche there is no special requirement.
Generally we allow one casket burial and one cremation urn or two cremation urns to be interred in one grave.
Yes, Beaverdale has a selection of cremation niches. The urn is entombed within the niche and an engraving into the granite front is made as the memorial. These niches are available at The Mausoleum, both inside the chapel and outside the building.
Memorials & Monuments
Yes, but it is best that you check with our office to be certain that the memorial meets our specific criteria and will be allowed to be installed on the grave.
Upright monuments are only allowed on lots so designated and where the right and privilege to have a monument has been purchased. These are always multiple grave (at least two graves) lots and are located in specific sections of Beaverdale. Please feel free to contact our office to verify your options.
Beaverdale always installs flush memorials and pours the concrete foundations for upright monuments. This is to ensure proper placement and quality of work. The company where you purchased your monument is responsible for the installation of the monument itself.
We offer flush bronze memorials for installation in Beaverdale sections designated for bronze. We can also assist you in selecting flush granite memorials and monuments where so designated.
We allow up to two 24″ x 12″ flush memorials to be placed on each grave.
Yes. There will be a small additional fee to record genealogical data in our permanent records. This will make it possible for future generations to research family histories.
