Have you ever seen a mausoleum? Chances are higher than you think. If you have seen photographs of the Taj Mahal or the Great Pyramids of Giza, you have. These are two great examples of large-scale Mausoleums. With Memorials of Virginia Beach Mausoleums are accessible to anyone not only kings and emperors. Our Mausoleum solutions are fantastic for holding multiple numbers of caskets. Whether you need a mausoleum inside a cemetery, near a place of worship or on private land - our masons will exceed your expectations. We specialize in garden mausoleums, family mausoleums and public mausoleums. Sometimes it is just safe to entomb the deceased than to bury them.
Types of mausoleum entombments.
When preparing for you and your loved one’s departure there are various types of mausoleums to consider. They all come in different shapes, sizes and costs. Our family mausoleums are designed to entomb members of the same family. Public mausoleums on the other hand are indoor structures that allow for visitors to meditate or pray alongside their loved one’s sealed crypt. Garden mausoleums are similar to public mausoleums with each door of each crypt opening to the outdoors. No matter your preference, our masons can erect the most stunning mausoleum either as a place of mourning or to entomb.
Advantages of Mausoleums.
Some people when they pass away may not be buried. This can be a result of religious convictions or personal preference. Mausoleums are therefore a great above-ground-option. Another advantage associated with our mausoleum structures is that you will be able to pay your respects even if weather conditions are bleak - access is easy no matter the temperature. And in areas with low elevation burying a casket might not be permitted. The biggest advantage of mausoleums is that it saves space and creates a sense of peace. A feeling we all want to experience in such dark and dreaded times.
The area you reside in as well as the type of mausoleum you prefer determines the cost. Entombment in a single crypt in public indoor mausoleum will come with a two thousand dollar price tag. And if you are planning on choosing an exclusive one, the costs will increase ten fold. One very important factor to consider before deciding if a mausoleum is the best option for you and your loved ones, is to be familiar with all the rules and regulations pertaining to visiting hours, memorial tributes and so forth. Luckily, you have got an expert in us that can guarantee you get exactly what you expect.
How we design and construct.
Our mausoleum structures are mostly constructed from premium quality granite, which comes in various colours and styles. For identification purposes we erect these structures with a name plate for etching your family name. We hand cut all the various parts of the construction, truly giving the mausoleum a customized look. For windows, various scenes of your choice can be depicted. At Memorials of Virginia Beach, all joint and seams are professionally sealed with only the most long lasting sealants. Plus, we do arched tops that compliment the architectural theme of the building itself. We do encourage our clients to be part of the design and construction process - your satisfaction is our priority.
