Memorial Property

Turning to the rich history of the rural cemeteries of the 19th century, the architects of Preble Memory Garden Cemetery preserved the historic elements of a time when cemeteries became, not only places of mourning, but also places for those wanting to experience the peacefulness and serenity of a beautiful park.

Preble Memory Garden Cemetery provides families with exceptional settings for memorialization of their loved ones.  Preble Memory Garden Cemetery is a perfect place for families to return, year after year, in remembrance and honor.

Sometimes one family member wants to be buried and another wishes to be cremated, yet they want to be together. Because we know this to be a common wish, Preble Memory Garden Cemetery makes it simple for families. We can easily arrange for a common burial of both your loved ones in the same plot.

We would be honored to guide you through the cemetery grounds, explore your perspectives, and make suggestions. Ultimately, the decision is in your hands; but our expertise can certainly guide you.

Ground Burial

Traditionally, in-ground burial has been the choice of many families. We provide families with many in-ground burial options, including lots for multiple family members, double space lots, single grave spaces, and spaces in our green burial section. Depending on the needs of the family, there are many areas throughout the cemetery to choose.


Cremation Options

Preble Memory Garden Cemetery maintains a variety of facilities for the interment of cremated remains, giving you a full selection of urns, mausoleum niches and a scattering garden. For those families who desire it, we’re also able to combine in-ground burial for both casketed and cremated remains.

Cremation niches are available in our mausoleum and include a bronze memorial. Our outdoor cremation garden are small, in-ground lots that accommodate two urns and are memorialized on a Community Memorial Board. Landscaped with trees, a flowing water feature, and beautiful flower beds, our cremation garden provides families with a uniquely tranquil setting.


Mausoleums

Mausoleums allow for above ground entombment in either community buildings or specially designed family structures. At one time the advantages of mausoleum entombment were available only to royalty, the famed or the very wealthy. Well-known mausoleums include the Taj Mahal, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Egyptian Pyramids. Mausoleum property is now affordable to most everyone.

The existing mausoleum at Preble Memory Garden Cemetery is a community mausoleum with crypt space for single, side by side, or true companion entombment as well as          cremation niches.


Private Family Mausoleum 

 Only just recently have family mausoleums become an affordable and viable option for more and more families. Annual sales of family mausoleums have increased 2200% in the past 20 years and are expected to continually increase in the future.

Selecting a family mausoleum is a sound and permanent investment requiring thoughtful, thorough consideration of many factors. We suggest an orderly step-by-step approach to eliminate uncertainties, minimize expenses and assure selection of the family mausoleum that meets all of your requirements.
