Chapel Mausoleums

Chapel Mausoleums are found at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Kenmore, Holy Cross Cemetery in Lackawanna, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Cheektowaga, Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Lewiston and Queen of Heaven Cemetery in the Town of Lockport.

The mausoleum concept has greatly expanded the burial options of Catholics who now have the opportunity to choose above ground entombment.

Mausoleums are constructed of steel reinforced concrete, natural stone, and the most durable rigid materials available. Each crypt chamber offers the same protection as the concrete outer container found in traditional ground burial. Both interior and exterior crypts are available.

Polished granite or marble decoratively seals each crypt. Memorialization is provided in the form of bronze lettering on interior crypts and incising of granite on exterior crypts.

Depending on the type and location of the grave, mausoleums can be very economical when compared to traditional ground burial.

The purchase price of the crypt includes permanent maintenance of the mausoleum.

 

Many forms of religious artwork make up the beauty of our chapel mausoleums.
