Description

 

Committal shelters and outdoor chapels serve a valuable role in the services a cemetery offers and provides.  Committal shelters and outdoor chapels not only provide a location for interment services away from the gravesite, they also provide a place of shelter for family and friends to remember, pay respects to, celebrate the life of, and say a final goodbye to the deceased.
