What is an In Ground burial?

In-ground burials have been a traditional choice for burials following death. This method of burial is also the most common option for those that want an outdoor memorial and would like a place for loved ones to come and reflect. It is also a good option for those that would like to be memorialized next to their loved ones. Princeton Memorial Park offers those throughout New Jersey several beautiful and peaceful grave sections that serve as final resting places for loved ones, where families can visit to remember and honor those they have lost.

To prepare for in-ground burial, the intact remains are preserved and placed into a casket. A hole is dug in the location where the burial vault and casket are to be buried. Traditionally, a funeral will take place and the casket is professionally loaded into the vault and covered with dirt. In the following weeks, the area is landscaped and a memorial is placed to mark where the remains are located. Our grounds at Princeton Memorial Park are kept in pristine condition 365 days a year, so each family has a beautiful place in New Jersey to visit and remember their loved one.
