Here are some of the options for cemetery cremation burials:
In a burial plot
Some cemeteries allow you to buy a plot to bury your cremation urn or an urn that is placed inside a vault to preserve it from damage. The gravesite may be marked with a headstone or gravestone such as a granite flat, bevel, slant, or upright monument, bench, statue, or sculpture. Often, more than one person may be buried in a single gravesite.
Urn Gardens are relatively new areas in cemeteries where you can bury an urn in a gravesite marked with a headstone. You may also bury an urn above ground inside of a traditional memorial or in a monument that is part of the landscaped urn garden, such as a boulder, a bench, or a fountain.
A columbarium is a building, small structure, or wall that that contains niches for urns. There are both public columbariums for many families and private columbariums for one family only.
In a mausoleum
Mausoleums are buildings in which the deceased bodies are entombed. Sometimes, mausoleums may contain a columbarium with niches for the storage of urns with cremated remains.
Inside a monument
Granite monuments can have a space bored out in which an urn is placed. Cemeteries often allow these memorials with niches on their grounds. Upright monuments, benches, statues, and sculptures are common cemetery monuments that hold cremated remains.
Cemetery cremation memorials, monuments, grave markers, benches, headstones, gravestones and niches are created by the memorial artists here at Rome Monument using the finest granite available. They can be adorned with beautiful custom designs, such as etchings, engravings, bas reliefs, statues, 3D carvings, and symbols and imagery that convey the specific nationality or religion of the deceased. They can be for any number of graves and come in a variety of styles and shapes. Cemeteries in Pittsburgh often permit the use of different monument types including cremation memorials to mark the resting place of the deceased. You can select from a wide variety of granite colors in different price ranges.
In addition to specializing in cremation memorials, the folks here at Rome Monument are certified by the ICCFA (International Cemetery Cremation and Funeral Association) to administer, organize, and arrange cremations, and are fully qualified to explain the cremation process, cremation costs, burial and internment services, memorialization options and other important details that will empower you and help you make the right decisions when the time arrives.
