Selecting Interment Space

Once a decision has been made about traditional burial v. cremation, families can then focus on the selection of interment space. Historic Oakwood Cemetery has multiple burial and interment options for both traditional and cremated remains. Staff at the cemetery can give you a tour of the grounds, and you of course may explore on your own. We’ve found that this type of decision is one that families know when it “feels right.” With a community mausoleum with crypt and niche space to shared obelisks for cremation options, Historic Oakwood Cemetery ensures that families feel welcome before during and after their time of need.
