When a loved one is cremated, you may have questions about what to do with their ashes. While some families choose to scatter ashes or keep them at home, choosing a permanent home for them at Elmwood will ensure that their memory is honored forever.

In many instances, ashes can be interred on an existing full-size grave (such as the grave of a spouse or parent), but memorialization must be approved by Elmwood in advance. An unused full-size grave may also be used to bury the ashes of up to 8 individuals, with one collective memorial stone.

We also sell spaces specifically for the burial of a single individual's ashes. Prices vary according to section, and range from $500 to $850 for single spaces and from $1,295 to $4,995 for full-size spaces (for up to 8 ashes interments). The opening and closing cost for ashes is $500 for each individual.

If you do not wish to bury your loved ones' ashes, Elmwood also has niches available in our columbarium. Each niche is $1,500 and will accomodate up to two individuals' ashes. The opening and closing expense is $500 for each infividual and engraving is an additional charge.
