Cremation is a major part of the cemetery and funeral industry, and has been increasing at a rapid rate each year because as the baby-boomer generation increases in age, they are demanding more burial opportunities for themselves and their loved ones. Part of working with our clients as a partner is helping them to achieve their goals. At Mekus Tanager, we specialize in timeless cemetery design and also incorporating the current and potential future demands of the cemetery industry.
A consistent part of our cemetery and funeral home design has included special considerations for cremation. For example, Mekus Tanager specifically designed niche sections (for cremains) on a separate level from garden crypts (for casket burials) in the Mausoleum of the Archangels Extension at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Alsip, IL. As part of the design team for the new Miramar National Cemetery, Mekus Tanager developed numerous columbarium complexes, an ossuary and memorial wall, and scatter garden to be incorporated throughout the cemetery to provide veterans with multiple options should they choose cremation.
