Cemetery Design and Planning: Mausoleums and Garden Crypt Complexes
Mausoleums and garden crypt complexes are becoming increasingly common in the modern cemetery. Since burial space is often at a premium, especially for older cemeteries, mausoleums and garden crypt complexes are popular because they allow for expanded burial inventory and options within a limited area.
Benefits of a well-designed mausoleum or garden crypt complex may include: increased revenue per burial space, enhancing the image and atmosphere of the cemetery, increased marketability for the cemetery, and increased flexibility for the cemetery to offer a greater variety of burial inventory to their clients. Mausoleums and garden crypt complexes also provide interment spaces for those with an aversion to in-ground burial.
In addition to an increase in burial inventory, mausoleums and garden crypt complexes can also incorporate and provide useful spaces that increase a cemetery's services offerings. Such spaces can include committal shelters, chapels, fountains, water features, gardens, seating areas, peaceful areas for reflection, public restrooms, and maintenance equipment storage. Often times we find our clients like incorporating a variety of features into their mausoleums and garden crypt complexes, both to add usefulness and inventory for the cemetery, but to also offer their clients and loved ones an attractive space to reflect on and celebrate the deceased's life.
