GROUND BURIAL FOR CREMATION

At Hills of Rest Cemetery we require that the cremation urn be placed in an outside burial container, or in other words, a cremation vault. The vault's purpose is to withstand the pressure of the earth so that over time the grave will not collapse. We sell the Harmony Urn Vault; a lined and sealed outside container made of concrete. It is large enough to accommodate almost any sized cremation urn, pictures or other small mementos.

We allow up to two inurnments into the same grave space. If a second person is to be inurned into the same space, a second right of inurnment must be purchased for the double use of the grave space.


Hills of Rest Cemetery allows one exception to the requirement of the use of a cremation vault. That exception is the placement of the cremated remains into a cremation marker receptacle.

Hills of Rest Cemetery does not allow scattering of cremated remains within the cemetery
