Three Reasons to Use a Mausoleum

Three Reasons to Use a Mausoleum

Whether you’re selecting a final resting place for yourself or for a loved one, choosing where and how to pay homage to a person is a deeply personal thing. There are many options available to you. One popular choice is mausoleums, buildings where a person’s coffin or urn is kept, sometimes with other meaningful objects from their life.

City View Mortuary has several options for those who wish to use a mausoleum, and we believe that they provide many benefits that other burial options lack. Here are three such benefits.

1. Mausoleums Provide a Peaceful Place for Loved Ones to Pay Their Respects

img_0915Our indoor crypts are beautiful, quiet, air conditioned buildings that allow for loved ones to mourn and reflect on the life of the deceased in a peaceful atmosphere. Mausoleums are much more private than traditional grave sites, especially if you choose one of our gorgeous garden pavilion crypts which are accessible only to family members. A mausoleum is the perfect place for healing and meditation.

2. Mausoleums Provide the Option for Families to Be Buried Together

Whether you choose a niche or a crypt, a mausoleum is the perfect place for families to be laid to rest together. Many of our guests find it meaningful to be buried with spouses or multiple members of their family, and a private mausoleum allows for a beautiful and meaningful way for their graves to be displayed side by side.

3. Mausoleums Provide Opportunities for Loved Ones to Be Buried with Significant Objects and Pictures

Our mausoleums niches allow for those that are cremated to be put to rest with pictures and significant items from their past. Our glass front niches display pictures and items alongside urns to help better capture the life and history of the person laid to rest there.

If you’re interested in learning more about the options we have available for mausoleums, including pricing, you can check our website or visit us in person in Salt Lake City. Let us help you create a one of a kind memorial that is perfectly suited to the memory of your loved one.

    Not a lot of people consider being buried in a mausoleum, so this was a very interesting read on why some people might choose to do so. I wouldn’t have even considered how a mausoleum would offer the ability to bury a loved one with significant objects and pictures. Although, in hindsight, it does make it much easier to put these objects in a mausoleum instead of trying to fit them into the casket and burying them in the ground.
