Types of Burials


There a several types of burials available in Cemetery District 10 which includes the Lynden Cemetery and the Greenwood Cemetery.

REMAINS
The deceased in interred in a casket which is placed in a concrete outer burial container. A memorial marker is provided by the family and installed at the direction of the commissioners.

CREMAINS
There are several options available for the burial of cremains. Cremains maybe placed in a casket and buried in the ground or placed in an urn and buried near the memorial marker on the same plot. This is an appropriate option if two loved ones have differing ideas about burial.

Urns with cremains can be placed along with a small marker in the Urn Garden which is available at the Greenwood Cemetery. There are meditation benches placed in the garden for those who would like to sit and spend time for reflection and contemplation.

There is a Scatter Garden at the Greenwood Cemetery where the cremains of loved ones may be scattered among the flowers.
