In 1987, the Ford family introduced a mausoleum complex to the cemetery.
The Memorial Park Cemetery Mausoleum is built of enduring granite and marble crypts which embody the concept of perpetual care and is placed in a beautiful and spiritually satisfying setting for above-ground interments and services sheltered from the weather.
The mausoleum is accessible year-round and each crypt is individual and distinctive yet easily located for private commemoration.
It is important to point out that when you select a mausoleum entombment, you eliminate the need to select... or purchase... a grave space, which may range between $650 and $1500 plus the cost of a burial vault and a grave marker. The single action of choosing a mausoleum site encompasses all of these, and it is for this reason that the cost of mausoleum entombment is usually less expensive than traditional ground burial.
