TRANSCRIPT OF THE VIDEO NARRATION:
In this chapter of the Essential Buyers Guide to Private Family Mausoleums...we’ll present a guide to private walk-in granite mausoleums, with prices for walk-in and non walk-in mausoleums for sale.
Let’s start with walk-in mausoleums.
A walk-in mausoleum is just that. You go in through a door and enter the inside of the mausoleum. Some of you may have been in a public walk-in mausoleum.
Lincoln’s Tomb in Illinois is a public walk-in mausoleum. So is Grant’s Tomb in New York. And the beautiful Garfield Memorial in Ohio. And there are many more.
They are filled with artwork and remembrances of the life of the deceased along with personal artifacts…and spaces for the public to sit and reflect.
These are for the general public to visit.
Private Family walk-in mausoleums are reserved for one family only. They can be modest…Or majestic. Walk-in mausoleums have crypt openings on the inside of the structure.
Cremated remains are placed in niches on the inside walls or in a freestanding columbarium that has compartments for multiple urns and ashes.
Walk-In mausoleums have working bronze doors that are opened with a private code. Walk-in mausoleums allow the family to visit the gravesite in comfort year-round. Your family will love visiting generation after generation. Artwork and remembrances reflect the family’s lives and loves. A walk-in mausoleum can have several rooms, including a chapel for prayer and reflection. They can be designed in any style you like, though most incorporate the grand architectural schemes of old.
A small walk-in mausoleum like this starts at around $225,000.
You can purchase a classically styled walk-in mausoleum like this from $700,000.
Some private family non walk-in mausoleums look just like walk-in mausoleums from the outside. They can even have an entrance door, though it’s for decoration only. Since you don’t have access to the inside, the crypt openings are on the outside of the mausoleum. Non-walk-in mausoleums can be any size and for any number of crypts.
Non walk-in private family mausoleums include lawn or ground-level mausoleums like these. Costs for these start at about $27,000 for a simple two-crypt non walk-in mausoleum.
Non walk-in Garden or Outdoor Mausoleums have no interior space for visitors. Costs for a garden mausoleum like this one start at about $200,000.
And non walk-in Estate Mausoleums are larger buildings that start at about $180,000.
When making your decision about buying the mausoleum that is right for your family, talk to your family about whether they would like a walk-in or non-walk-in mausoleum.
