Cremation Options

With cremation, you have options that aren’t available with traditional burial. You can place the remains in an urn and inter it in the family plot, place the urn in a niche in one of Graceland's mausoleums, or you can customixe your cremation. Our Family Service Counselors will explain the many options that are available to you.

Another interment option besides traditional ground burial is mausoleum entombment. A mausoleum is simply a large building designed to provide above-ground interment (or entombment) for a number of unrelated people. Sharing the cost of the mausoleum with other individuals has made it an affordable and attractive option for many. Graceland Cemetery has eight mausoleums, including two indoor chapels.


Cremation Memorial

Our Combination Cremation/Urn Memorial is a beautifully designed bronze memorial which is actually a combination urn and memorial in one. Permanently attached to the bottom of the memorial are two hand-crafted bronze urns designed to hold cremated remains. This memorial can be placed in many different gardens of our cemetery.


A niche is used for the permanent storage and/or display of cremated remains. There are many kinds of niches to chose from. We even have some niches that are made of bronze and are glass fronted so you can always see the actual urn that contains the cremated remains.

Cremation Guide

The Everything Cremation Guide gives you a better understanding of your choices when you choose cremation.

For instance, you can be embalmed for a traditional service and then cremated—and then the ashes can be buried. Or, you might choose a cremation bench, mausoleum niche, water burial, or take-home selections like jewelry and other keepsakes.
