Burial Options Traditional Burial
A Permanent Resting Place for Your Loved One
A traditional burial service is a memorial choice that gives families a meaningful physical symbol to mark a loved one’s resting place. The burial option the most people likely think of when they think of a “traditional burial” is the typical lawn burial, but that is not the only burial option available to you.
Traditional burial covers all burial options that do not involve cremation, and there are a number of choices for your loved one’s final resting place. At Green Hills Memorial Park in Rancho Palos Verdes, we offer a broad range of traditional burial options.
The most common burial method, lawn burial, allows families to bury one or two people in diverse areas throughout our park.
Our carefully-landscaped grounds mean that you have a broad variety of cemetery burial plots to choose from with a number of different features for your loved one’s lawn burial. Our beautiful ponds, waterfalls, rolling hills, and scenic vistas create a peaceful sanctuary for our guests while providing them with a safe environment to visit their loved ones.
We create this range of different areas for burial plots so you can lay your loved one to rest in a place that celebrates and represents their life and your relationship with them.
For your peace of mind, our $50 million Endowment Care fund ensures our park will have the operating capital to maintain pristinely manicured grounds in perpetuity with a safe environment to visit your loved ones.
One of the oldest and most dignified burial methods, mausoleum entombment remains a popular and classy choice still today.
Pristine, above-ground, dry, and private, a mausoleum burial is a dignified method of permanently enshrining your loved one. These distinguished areas are easy to find and offer handicapped accessibility, restrooms, and protection from extreme weather.
A mausoleum burial is not technically a burial at all, as it involves choosing an above-ground crypt as your loved one’s final resting place. This allows you to include pictures and sentimental objects to be enshrined with your loved one in a place they can be seen and honored.
We recently received a worldwide award of excellence on our mausoleum’s newly constructed project, Inspiration Slope Mausoleum, now known as The Jewel of the Park.
For some, a private, curated burial plot to your exact specifications is the best place to memorialize a loved one. If this sounds like you, our private gardens and family cemetery estates may be the right choice for you.
These exclusive areas are the finest tributes Green Hills Memorial can offer your family. They provide scenic views of the Pacific Ocean, San Gabriel Mountains, and the Palos Verdes hills.
Designed for individuals who want to keep their loved ones together in one spectacular setting, these unique burial plots allow you to customize a private cemetery within our memorial park. You can do so by incorporating beautiful stone walls, lush landscaping, personalized memorials, benches, and more.
If any of these traditional burial options sound right to you, or if you have further questions, please reach out to schedule a free 15-minute call with us to see how we can arrange a beautiful memorial and burial plot for your loved ones.
