Lawn Crypt – The Two-Person Above Ground Option That Remains Dry
There are two main benefits of above ground lawn crypt burial:
Lawn crypts allow two people to be memorialized together (though they are also available for one person)
The space always remains clean and dry (crypts also feature a water drainage system directly below the area to provide added protection from weather)
Lawn crypt burial is the right choice for you if:
You want to be buried next to a deceased loved one
You want a marker or monument to memorialize you
You want loved ones to place flowers and other decorations at the site
You prefer traditional cemetery burials
You want the promise and peace-of-mind of a dryer gravesite
Average prices of a lawn crypt
Like with most other burial options, the price of lawn crypts can vary greatly based on factors such as preferred decorative options and the state in which you wish to be buried. On average, you can usually expect to pay at least $1,600 for a lawn crypt, but sometimes as much as $6,000 for a single and upwards of $10,000 for a double. We recommend contacting a cemetery directly for an individual quote.
Above ground burial crypts consist of four components:
Gravesite – the space or plot.
Casket – displays and contains the deceased, either for burial or cremation.
Memorial – a tribute installed at the gravesite to honor and celebrate a life worth remembering. Flat bronze markers are installed at memorial parks and upright concrete monuments are installed at cemeteries.
Vault– a concrete enclosure that serves as the casket's protective lining and provides safe, sure footing for your loved ones.
