To prepare for in-ground burial, the intact remains are preserved and placed into a casket. A hole is dug in the location where the body and casket are to be buried. Traditionally, a funeral will take place and the casket is professionally loaded into the ground and covered with dirt. In the following weeks, the area is landscaped and a memorial is placed to mark where the remains are located. Our grounds at Memorial Properties are kept in pristine condition 365 days a year, so each family has a beautiful place in New Jersey to visit and remember their loved one.
