Did you know that above ground Mausoleum Entombment is typically less expensive than ground burial? 

Many families have the perception that Mausoleum is only for the wealthy. This is because throughout history when we think of a mausoleum, we think of the Pyramids in Egypt and the Taj Mahal. If that were our only choice, I agree, it is very expensive.

Many families don’t realize that Mausoleum was the most traditional form of final disposition for decades. With that in mind we offer our families the choice of a Private Family Mausoleum from 1 crypt up to however many a family might need.  This option starts at about $50,000

However, for most of us that want the dignity of Mausoleum Entombment without the cost of their own building we offer Community Mausoleums. This offers families a clean, dry environment that is easily accessible for their family. These also have different levels, from our lower level called the Prayer Level, moving up to the heart level, and then some families want to be in an upper level or jokingly referred to as “the penthouse”. 

On the average, cost for 2 people to be buried in the ground with spaces, vaults, bronze memorial, and interment fees, this can cost almost $19,000 . Most families are very surprised to learn that we have Mausoleum Entombment for 2 people starting at around $8,000 . This amount can be paid in full or put on easy monthly payment of $100/month

If you would like more information on our beautiful Mausoleum options, please give us a call at 615-864-4602.

Crestview Memory Gardens Hosts Military Funeral for WWII Army Air Corps Pilot

On September 21st, we were honored to host a military funeral for Private Lloyd Atterson, a World War II Army Air Corps pilot, 74 years after the U.S. Army Air Corps pilot flew his last World War II missions in the Pacific theater and Aleutian Islands, and 46 years after his death.
Atterson, who passed away in 1973, was buried without the Department of Defense-provided military honors because his widow and children did not have necessary service documentation at the time of his death. His youngest son, Mark Atterson, himself an Army veteran, relentlessly pursued gathering the necessary paperwork to prove his father’s service. After years of searching, Mark located an official form at the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis, where his father received treatment after the war. He then enlisted the help of Crestview Memory Gardens staff to arrange his father’s long-awaited military funeral honors. The ceremony included a United States flag folding and family presentation by uniformed military personnel, followed by the military bugle playing “Taps,” which is traditionally played to accompany the lowering of the flag, as well as for memorial and burial services.
Private Atterson, who was laid to rest beside daughter Lydia Gail Atterson, at Crestview Memory Gardens, was survived by his wife, Ilene, daughters Kathy and Lydia, sons Lloyd, Jr., David, Mark, and Larry, a Vietnam Navy veteran, who also predeceased his father. Lloyd's brothers, PFC Benny Atterson and Sgt. Roy Atterson, who also served in the Pacific Theater during WW II, had preceded Lloyd in death at the time. He was survived by sisters Thelma and Wanda, and a younger brother Sgt. Harold Atterson, who was a Korean War Veteran. Harold passed away in 2012.
Lloyd’s youngest son Mark and his wife Rita; Lloyd’s grandchildren Melissa “Missy” Crouse with her husband Sean, Melinda “Mindy” Killion, both Larry’s children; as well as, Lloyd’s great grandchildren, Kelsie, Brieanne, Morgan, Austin, Michael, Kendalyn, and David, attended the September 21 st military funeral honors, which also included a pinning ceremony for veteran sons Larry and Mark. Mark accepted the military pin posthumously for his late brother Larry who passed away this past April. Also in attendance are family friends David and Jan Eagan from Franklin, Tennessee along with several local veterans.
