Traditional Burial


Holy Cross Cemetery, Akron in the spring

The Catholic Cemeteries Association offers the following selection of grave sections as final resting places:

  • Shrine Graves are located in sections of the cemetery where shrines or statues have been erected.
  • Monument Graves are located in sections that have been zoned to allow large family monuments.
  • Marker Graves are those that feature headstones that are level with the lawn.
  • Roadside Graves are graves located closer to the road for easier visitation.


The Catholic Cemeteries Association offers above-ground burial in mausoleums to all, at affordable prices. Some mausoleums at our cemeteries also include a chapel where Masses and memorial services are held.

Estate Mausoleums

An Estate Mausoleum can be personalized with a variety of options. These structures provide interment for family members, allow for private and personal meditation, urns, vases, and religious symbols and other enhancements which reflects your family’s preferences.
