A few things to consider
Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you think about your cemetery needs:
Do I prefer a traditional burial or cremation?
If I prefer cremation, do I want an above-ground niche or in-ground burial or scattering?
Do I want a traditional headstone, a lawn-level marker, or some other memorial – perhaps a bench, a plaque, or a garden?
Will a spouse, children or others eventually be buried nearby?
What is my budget? At Lakeside Cemetery, in-ground spaces start at $300.
At Lakeside, you can choose from:
Traditional Graves – these spaces are available in many areas throughout Lakeside. Read more about these areas by clicking here.
Estate Lots – Estate Lots allow for creative expression (typically, some of the lot is used for a bench, flower garden, or small sculpture, rather than using it all for burial space). These lots are sold by the square foot, and are often designed based on a family’s preference for the surrounding landscape, views and topography (e.g., hillsides).
Feature Lots – A Feature Lot allows families to create their own “cemetery within a cemetery,” an area just for you or the whole family. Many families use these lots to erect private Mausoleums or Sarcophagi. Feature Lots often accommodate a garden, benches, sculptures or a combination of the above.
Estate and Feature Lots will require the establishment of a trust for maintenance depending on what type of enhancements are made to the Lot.
Veterans Areas – Lakeside offers a Field of Valor section reserved for veterans and their spouses.
Restricted Areas - While Lakeside embraces and welcomes people of all faiths, there are sections reserved for Masons as well as for Muslims.
