This page offers guidelines to help you make your funeral and final disposition decisions. First, here are some important facts about the cemeteries that make up Washington Park Cemetery Association:
Our families tell us that having a permanent place to come remember a loved one is important to them -- that it’s part of continuing their loved-ones legacy.
At our parks there are various honorable and memorable ways to memorialize a loved one. Cremated remains can be buried, placed in a columbarium niche or scattered.
Our Cumberland Trails Cremation Garden at Washington Park East is a unique option where a loved one’s cremated remains can be placed and memorialized. This garden is unique to the Central Indiana area.
Affordable garden mausoleum crypts were first made available in Indianapolis at Floral Park Cemetery over forty years ago. Since that time thousands of individuals have shown a preference for above ground crypts. Personal estate and private estate above-ground options are also available.
Benefits of Mausoleum Entombment
Ground burial has been the traditional method of burial in Indiana because of past practice and a large amount of available land. Though land in our cemeteries is still available for many years to come, we encourage our families to also consider the benefits of mausoleum entombment.
Benefits of Ground Burial
Monuments are available at the cemetery in the full range of style and sizes. Prices are competitive and in some cases lower than what you will find elsewhere.
New laser etching techniques allow for photographs to be placed on the granite memorial.
We recommend that you purchase your memorial from us because we are a non-profit cemetery that will be responsible for maintaining your burial space in the future.
