Beechwood offers families a wide range of caskets, suitable for cremation or burial. Even if cremation is selected, a casket may be present during visitation, informal gatherings or other commemorative events. Caskets made of all types of wood, steel or cloth, as well as enviro options, can be selected. Interiors are made of a wide range of fabrics, including satin, velvet, crepe, and linen.
Casket Burial Options
For casket burials, Beechwood offers a broad range of location choices, either in-ground or above-ground. For example, the Stations of the Cross, which are large black monuments etched with an artist’s depiction of the 14 Stations of the Cross, houses many burial plots of differing sizes to meet the needs of families well into the future.
Protective Burial Vault
For families choosing in-ground casket burial, many select a protective burial vault. A burial vault is a lined and sealed outer receptacle that houses the casket. It protects the casket from the weight of the earth and heavy maintenance equipment that will pass over the grave. It also helps resist water and preserves the beauty of the cemetery by preventing the ground from settling.
Single-Grave and Two-Grave (Double) Lots
Beechwood offers single graves and two-grave lots, or double lots, which can accommodate caskets, urns, or a combination of caskets and urns. A single grave can accommodate up to two caskets and eight urns. A two-grave lot, or a double lot, can accommodate up to four caskets and sixteen urns.
Family Estate Lots
Beechwood offers an array of lot sizes to accommodate a family’s future needs for multiple casket burials, cremation burials or combinations of casket and cremation burials. As well, these larger locations provide more space for the creation of a unique or larger monument. This is often an economical choice for a location that will ultimately serve a larger number of family members.
Beechwood also offers outdoor crypts for those who prefer above-ground entombment. These structures are placed in historic areas of the cemetery and are constructed from materials that will last for centuries.
Beechwood has locations available for families who wish to custom build mausoleums for as many as a family may require.
