As cremation gains popularity across the country, the staff of the Homewood Cemetery has become uniquely sensitive to the needs of those who choose this option. Cremation allows for many possibilities when considering a final resting place. Choosing the Homewood Cemetery, for entombment or burial, gives you and your family the opportunity to have a dignified and lasting place for visitation and memorialization.
In addition to ground burial, which can allow for two family members to be placed in a single space with cremation, mausoleum or columbarium style entombment’s are also very popular options. Columbarium, by definition, is a structure with niches (small spaces) for placing cremated remains in urns or other approved containers. These could be outdoor units or structures that are part of a larger mausoleum. Glass niche units allow for a decorative urn to be placed, as well as a personal memento of your loved one. The Homewood Cemetery is proud to offer all of the aforementioned as options for you and your family.
We also offer a wide selection of full-size decorative urns, keepsake urns, and cremation jewelry.
Our family service counselors are very well versed with all of the options that the Homewood Cemetery has to offer in regards to cremation. They can help you navigate through the many decisions that may arise, and can even assist with planning a personalized memorial service for your loved one in our chapel and event space.
