Often, when the choice is cremation, the perception is that the cremation process is the final step in the process. This does not need to be the case; when cremation is chosen, a final, permanent resting place allows for the life to be memorialized for immediate family as well as future generations. This permanency is the pillar of memories, communities and recognizing the significance for the individual’s life as it was lived.
Interior glass or bronze front niches
Located within the Memorial Chapel, these allow a prominent display of creative urns which can reflect individual personalities. The niches accomodate personal mementos which can be memorabilia. Fort Howard offers a large variety of cremation urns, including artwork urns, to fit within the niches.
Exterior granite front niches
Located on the exterior of the mausoleum buildings, and as separate buildings within a specialized area of Secton 8, granite front niches offer a secure and dignified way to permanently place an urn within a beautiful building. These niches can be personalized with bronze photo emblems and/or floral remembrances.
Granite cremation benches, memorial rocks and cremation pillars
These memorials can be added to many different areas of the cemetery (with management approval) as a way to add burial options or to enhance areas where traditional burials cannot be performed. Cored holes are integrated into the granite, allowing a concealed area for cremated remains to be permanently placed.
Inurnment within traditional grave space
Regular spaces throughout the entire park can be used for burial of cremated remains. Standard memorials can be installed just as they would be for traditional ground burial. Fort Howard allows two cremated remains to be inurned within one standard space.
