Linwood Cemetery now offers the first Ossuary in the area, bringing new choices to memorialize your loved ones!
Cremation has been done in some form or another for at least 17,000 years. It's been a popular option to full-casket burial for decades, and millions of people prefer it. Cremation is a popular choice, and with cremation rates predicted to reach 80% in the next decade, it's clear that it's no longer just a religious or financial decision, but also a question of personal preference and convenience.
In April, 2022, A new Ossuarium arrived and was installed at Linwood Cemetery, to meet the growing demand. The Ossuarium provides additional options for interment of funerary ashes, also known as "cremains", in a convenient structure.
The ossuarium is a combined unit of 48 single niches for the placement of single cremation urns and 48 double niches for 2 cremation urns or one "double urn". In addition, a center ossuary is available for the placement of cremation ashes into one location. A black marble obelisk is seated next to the ossuarium, listing the names, birth and death dates for those placed in the ossuary.
