Traditional Ground Burial
The Lexington Cemetery offers a variety of lot sizes to accommodate the diverse needs of residents. Lots are available throughout the Cemetery grounds. Most of the cemetery features sections where headstones are used to memorialize the deceased; however, new sections are available for people who prefer grass level markers.
Throughout the ages, from the Egyptian pyramids to the Taj Mahal, to America’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, many people have preferred the dignity, prestige and respect of above-ground entombment. Mausoleums provide the most complete and secure protection. Until recently, they have been available only to royalty, the rich and the famous. Now, people who can afford a traditional earth burial can afford entombment in a mausoleum.
To accommodate people who prefer cremation, The Lexington Cemetery expanded its cremation facilities to include a third cremation retort in 1997. It includes an informal chapel to offer comfort to family and friends during the cremation process, and as a place for families to fulfill their religious obligations.
