Interment of non-veterans along the Avenue
Interment within the Veterans Cremation Garden surrounding the War on Terror Memorial is restricted to honorably discharged veterans and their families. However, there will be no such restrictions on similar cylindrical repositories that will be placed among the flags along the Avenue.
Each of these repositories will accommodate the remains of any number of people, from a couple who wish to be buried together, to a larger number of members of an extended family, and even to larger groups of people who wish to be close the each other in death as they were in life. One might be open to the members of a single church, of a fraternal organization, or of any other group that shares a common bond. After the repository is established, additional remains can be added as deaths occur.
As we do with the veterans and their families, we will create a permanent memorial page on the America’s Cemetery web site for each person interred. It can contain an obituary, tributes, photos, videos, whatever the individual or family members desire. Designated people close to the individual will have access through a password to enable them to upload documents or images themselves.
The possibilities are limited only by the imagination and good taste.
If you would like to request the development of a repository for a family or group, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 724-346-3818.
Interment around the gazebo
The decision about what to do with the cremated remains of yourself or your relative is a very personal one. For those who choose to have them interred in a cemetery, America’s Cemetery offers several options. They can be interred in your family plot or in a niche. The third option is to have them buried in our Cremation Gardens, around a beautiful gazebo among the trees or along the Avenue of 444 Flags.
