Above-Ground Burial Options in New Jersey

What is an Above-Ground Burial?

Above-ground burial allows those in New Jersey to put loved ones to rest in a beautiful and peaceful environment, as well as having a place to visit to honor and remember those they have lost. At Memorial Properties, we are home to ten resting places in New Jersey, which includeelegant mausoleumsand additional options for above-ground burials. Our mausoleums are designed specifically for either cremated or intact remains above the ground, and we provide additional spaces for more than one family member to be put to rest together.

Above-ground burials are often more cost-effective than atraditional in-ground burial, as families are able to avoid many of the costs associated with in-ground burials. During an above-ground burial, cremated or intact remains are entombed in one of our peaceful mausoleums, either individually or side-by-side. Memorial Properties’ above-ground burial options include community mausoleums, private mausoleums, and lawn crypts. Family members and friends can then visit the mausoleum to pay their respects to their loved one. Along with our burial grounds, our mausoleums in New Jersey are kept in pristine condition 365 days a year.
