Sunset Memorial Gardens in Aberdeen prides itself on being able to provide options for families. The options available include everything from the traditional casket or urn burial to entombments and inurnments in our mausoleum.
Interment Options at Sunset Memorial Gardens
A traditional ground burial is the most common method of disposition at our cemetery. There are several Gardens to choose from. Each Garden has a Monument as a focal point that may offer inspiration and hope.
Above ground entombment is available in our Mausoleum. There are indoor and outdoor Crypts available for single and companion spaces. The indoor environment is climate controlled for our families and guests to visit in comfort. The outdoor Crypt area has a warm, patio-like atmosphere.
In the Mausoleum, Niches with glass fronts are offered for inurnments and or placement of a permanent memorial display.
Garden of Honor
Sunset Memorial Gardens has a garden which is set aside for Veterans and their spouses. This garden follows some of the same guidelines as National Veterans cemeteries.
Garden of Calvary
A Garden that allows upright monuments and private family Mausoleums.
Columbarium and Ossuary
Located outside of the Mausoleum. An Ossuary is where cremated remains are placed in an underground container. These remains share the space. A granite tablet located next to the ossuary is used as a space to engrave the names of the individuals whose cremated remains have been placed in the Ossuary.
The Columbarium is an outdoor Niche made of granite that is located near the Ossuary. Each Niche space in the Columbarium can hold up to two urns.
