Burial Options

Since the beginning of time, humans have returned bodies to the earth in burials. Indeed, for most of Lakewood’s 150-year history, this was the primary way of honoring the dead.

Although cremation has become increasingly popular, casket burial continues to be chosen by many individuals and families to honor personal preferences or cultural and religious traditions.

At Lakewood, you can choose from picturesque plots located throughout our vast 250-acre memorial park—or have the casket permanently placed inside a crypt within one of our landmark architectural buildings. Come in and let us show you the options so you can find just the right site or setting.
