What is an above ground burial?

Above-ground burial allows those in New Jersey to put loved ones to rest in a beautiful and peaceful environment, as well as having a place to visit to honor and remember those they have lost. At Princeton Memorial Park, we have elegant mausoleums and additional options for above-ground burials. Our mausoleums are designed specifically for either cremated or intact remains above the ground, and we provide additional spaces for more than one family member to be put to rest together.

Above-ground burials are often more cost-effective than a traditional in-ground burial, as families are able to avoid many of the costs associated with in-ground burials. During an above-ground burial, cremated or intact remains are entombed in one of our peaceful mausoleums, either individually or side-by-side. Princeton Memorial Parks’ above-ground burial options include community mausoleums and private mausoleums. Family members and friends can then visit the mausoleum to pay their respects to their loved one. Along with our burial grounds, our mausoleums in New Jersey are kept in pristine condition 365 days a year.

Pre-Planning An Above-Ground Burial In New Jersey

No matter what type of burial you are considering for the future, pre-planning your arrangements will take the burden off of your family when the time comes. No one likes to think about death, but it is inevitable, and when you pre-plan your funeral and choose your burial arrangements ahead of time, you can be sure that your exact wishes will be honored. Pre-planning also brings peace of mind in the sense that you will know that your family will not have to make difficult decisions in the future, when they are already dealing with a loss. When you pre-plan your arrangements with Princeton Memorial Park, you can specify what type of burial you would like, where you would like to be buried, and how you will be memorialized in that location, which saves costs and provides immense peace of mind.
