Traditional Ground Burial

About Traditional Burial

Traditionally, in-ground burial has been the choice of many families.

Ferncliff Cemetery continues to provide families with many in-ground burial options in our memorial park setting.

Individuals and families who prefer ground burial have several options: family plots; cremation/urn gardens; and two types of graves - single grave plots (primarily double depth) and lawn crypts.

Ferncliff provides a large selection of graves in our newest sections, Hickory Terrace, Hillcrest Garden, and Wittenberg Estate Garden.

For those of the Jewish faith, single graves on consecrated ground are available in specially dedicated sections throughout the park.

Nestled among rolling hills, Ferncliff features beautiful perennial gardens and tree-shaded walkways. The landscaping is meticulously maintained year-round with plantings that celebrate each season's offerings. Loved ones are honored with bronze lawn memorials that blend unobtrusively with nature.
