- About Us
Many families opt for cremation instead of more traditional burials. They might also wish to permanently inter the ashes in the ground or in a mausoleum niche, which can provide the benefit of both traditional interment and cremation inurnment — a place for family members to visit and pay their respects for generations to come.
For more information, including costs, availability and discount programs, at any of our properties, please contact our Family Service Office.
Please note that only a licensed funeral director can arrange for a cremation, and by law, we are legally not able to provide cremation provider recommendations.
Traditionally, most people are interred in the ground with either a stone monument or flush memorial designating their location. Families can choose from a variety of locations throughout the cemetery, including specific sections reserved for members of different faiths, nationalities and organizations. Cremations can also be permanently memorialized as ground burials.
A mausoleum is a structure for above-ground entombment and cremation inurnment. There are oftentimes both interior and exterior locations available for a mausoleum entombment, and cremation inurnment. Many families prefer interior mausoleum entombment, because it provides for visitation year-round, when weather conditions might otherwise be prohibitive.
Alpine Cemetery does not sell monuments and memorials, but we can provide a list of local companies that do. If you are interested in more information, please contact our Administrative Office.
