From its inception, Beaverdale Memorial Park has strived to meet the needs of the community. As a non-sectarian cemetery we serve families of all faiths and beliefs. We recognize the changing attitudes and needs of individuals and families. We are proud to offer a wide range of burial options that match the financial resources and personal preferences of all families. These include: traditional burial, entombment (above-ground burial) and the memorialization of cremated remains. We are also able to offer assistance to families in the selection of appropriate memorials to celebrate their loved one’s life.
Traditional Burial Beaverdale Memorial Park offers a wide selection of grave space. A family may choose burial rights in the Bronze Sections where the appropriate tribute is a flush bronze memorial and where any number of spaces can be selected together. We also have available traditional lots where the memorial is an upright granite monument. These are available in multiples of two or more burial spaces. A flush granite memorial may also be placed on each of these monument section graves.
Entombment (above-ground burial) The Mausoleum at Beaverdale is the first and only community mausoleum in a non-sectarian cemetery serving the greater New Haven community. Families have a wide selection of crypts (entombment spaces) to choose from creating diverse pricing options. An inscription is engraved into the granite crypt front as a memorial.
Cremations Beaverdale offers many choices for cremated remains. Families may select one of our niches located in the mausoleum or they may choose traditional earth burial of the remains in either a standard grave or in our urn garden. No matter the choice, we can assist in the selection of a proper memorial.
Urn Garden As part of the landscaping at the entrance to the mausoleum, the Urn Garden offers a peaceful, dignified option for remembering a loved one who has been cremated. Two urns may be interred in each grave and a customized flush bronze memorial is placed celebrating their lives.
Bronze - To remember the lives of those who are interred in the bronze memorial park areas of the cemetery, Beaverdale offers a wide selection of flush bronze memorials, which may be customized to honor each individual. These 24” by 12” solid cast bronze memorials are installed flush on either a polished granite or a pre-cast concrete base.
Shared Monuments Beaverdale has a limited selection of shared monument lots. These two-grave lots include the right to have the adjacent monument inscribed as a memorial. This option allows for smaller two-grave lots while still maintaining the original beauty and symmetry of the cemetery.
Inscriptions Remembrances for those who are entombed in the mausoleum are created by inscribing the solid granite crypt or niche front. We assist each family in creating a fitting tribute and carefully supervise its carving.
Floral Beaverdale Memorial Park offers a floral service. We will provide and place freshly cut flower bouquets on graves on the date specified by the family. We will also provide a fresh evergreen pillow as a winter grave decoration.
Mausoleum Floral vases elegantly cast in bronze and permanently attached to the granite front are available. These vases will accommodate a bouquet of artificial or silk flowers, becoming an integral part of the memorial. Even when not in use, the simple, dignified design will only add to the beauty of the inscription.
Grave Beaverdale is pleased to provide cemetery vases for your freshly cut flower bouquets at no cost. These may be secured just outside the entrance to our office any time you visit. Simply place the vase and bouquet on the grave. During our normal maintenance cycle we will remove all wilted decorations and recycle the vases.
