Arrangement and Burial Service

Arrangement and Burial Service

Like each individual life, burial services should be special and unique to the loved ones they are honoring. At Grove Place Cemetery, we offer traditional in-ground casket and cremation burials options. We also have a Columbarium on site for above ground cremation interment. We help make difficult decisions a lot easier during an emotional time.

Traditional Burial

This term refers to the type of burial where a person is placed into a casket for burial in a designated grave or lot in the cemetery. Only one casket is permitted to be buried in each grave. Grove Place Cemetery also requires that an outer burial container or vault be used for a traditional burial. Before the interment takes place, the outer burial container is positioned in the grave for the casket to be lowered into. Outer burial containers are usually made of concrete and sometimes equipped with a protective shell of “strentex” which is a strong seamless plastic. The purpose of the outer burial container is to protect the casket from the elements and also to protect the ground from caving or settling on the surface.

Burial of Cremated Remains

Grove Place Cemetery offers several options for those who have chosen cremation for their final disposition. Cremains may be buried in any rigid container on a full lot, in a cremation lot or as a right of bury over. The right to bury over simply means that when possible, cremated remains may be buried on a grave where a casket has already been interred. This option is not always possible and is dependent on the individual grave. An urn which will be buried does not require an outer burial container, nor does an urn which will be placed into the columbarium.


Grove Place offers an above ground option in the form of a Columbarium, which is a structure built for the sole purpose of housing Urns in individual niches. The face of the niche is inscribed with the name of the deceased and dates of birth and death. Niches can accommodate a standard size urn.
Our Columbarium area is surrounded by flowering shrubs with a Contemplation Bench.
