Memorialization

Cremation Container


All remains must be cremated in a combustible casket or alternative container. Our licensed staff members can go over the requirements for any cremation container, and in the event that a casket or container does not meet the requirements for cremation, the Authorizing Agent will be notified.

 

 

Memorialization


At Jefferson Memorial, memorialization means having a final resting where the mortal remains of someone important to us are interred and will be visited and remembered. Cremation, like traditional burial, should not be considered an end, but a beginning, as the first step in the process to create a lasting tribute and a place of honor for the present generation to pass on your story to the next generation.

 

 

Urn or Temporary Container


After the cremated remains have been processed, they will be placed in an urn provided by the family, or, a temporary container provided by the Crematory. We recommend for an adult cremation that the urn or temporary container be at least 200 cubic inches. In the event a provided urn is insufficient to accommodate all of the cremated remains a secondary container will be provided.

 

Our cemetery is a memorial park, where bronze markers are used instead of tombstones to memorialize our dearly departed. Like traditional ground burial, cremated remains may be inurned in the ground, indoor or outdoor mausoleum, niche, or your mantel at home.

 

Generally, niche units and ground space are designed to hold two cremations. However, some large niches will accommodate up to four cremations. At Jefferson Memorial, we believe in how you should be remembered, and are here to help you make the best decision possible.
