A mausoleum is a structure developed to hold bodies after a funeral service, permitting above-ground burial (called entombment). The dry, sealed chamber that holds a coffin is called a crypt, and crypts normally are single or double (holding one coffin or more), although some crypts hold up to 4 coffins.
FamilyMausoleums.net offers one- to six-crypt customized granite mausoleums that are delivered and reassembled onsite for $11,000-$160,000, depending upon the size and design, and will include the setup, however, the price won’t include the cemetery place or the needed structure.
What should be included
Extra expenses to think about
Normally, a body is embalmed prior to being entombed in a mausoleum. Embalming with cosmetic work can cost another $300-$1,100, depending upon what will be included. A coffin is also needed, which can be $1,000 to $7,000, or even more. A total standard funeral plan with embalming, coffin, services, procession, and so on, can cost $6,000 to $15,000 or more, in addition to the expense of the mausoleum and entombment costs.
Searching for a mausoleum
Not all cemeteries will approve mausoleums; check to see what choices are readily available in the area around you for either private or community mausoleums. Looking on Google for “cemetery” plus the name of the county or closest town will supply a list of regional cemeteries.
If utilizing a large or non-standard coffin, make sure to examine the measurements of the coffin against the area inside the crypt. When selecting a mausoleum, inquire about the entombment charges and if there are added fees for continuous care, plaque inscription (in some cases called “memorialization”), or any other services.
