At the time of a loved one’s passing there are many important decisions that must be made. Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery will help you with the selection process regarding the final disposition of your loved one.
The first decision to be made is whether traditional burial, mausoleum entombment, cremation with ground interment, or cremation with inurnment in a columbarium will be chosen.
The second decision and one of the most important is the burial vault. The vault is essential to the integrity of the burial site. Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery is proud to recommend quality burial vaults, manufactured on-site and offered at a substantial savings when purchased through your cemetery. Additionally, we offer the complete line of trigard burial vaults which are of a detailed and hand decorated caliber. These are beautiful options when used for display at the graveside service.
Next, the interment or inurnment charge is the cost of not only opening the grave or burial site and restoring it, but all of the many administrative and labor costs associated.
Finally, the memorial process is an important step in the burial process. We have on display within the Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery office a large selection of beautiful handcrafted bronze markers from which you may select a style for personalization. Our markers are then set flush with the ground and an optional granite base may be selected.
The staff at Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery will assist you through this difficult time and is here to help your family.
Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery will prepare the gravesite for the committal service prior to burial and erect a tent near the grave with seating for family members.
Family and friends will then gather at the graveside with clergy or a leader for remembrance and committal of the body or cremated remains.
Within the grounds of Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery an authentic English garden chapel is available for committal services within the park. Disassembled and transported from England, this 18th-century chapel is a beautiful setting for services to remember your loved one.
For those who have served their country, military honors are a special part of the funeral and a well-deserved tradition at Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery. Under the “Honoring Those Who Served” plan enacted by the Department of Defense, a family may request the military honors ceremony for an eligible veteran.
Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery is proud to help honor the service of our esteemed veterans. Should you be interested in donating your loved one's VA flag to Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery, we will proudly fly it in their honor over the Memorial Day holiday.
