Coming Soon...

Dulaney Valley Cremation Center, our new state-of-the-art crematory providing cremation services, includes a private room for memorial services as well as a viewing room. The Center is in the final stages of development, with construction slated for completion this Fall. Until then, a temporary facility is being utilized to perform cremation services.

Families choose cremation for a variety of reasons such as environmental, philosophical or religious preferences. Others choose cremation because they feel it is less complicated. No matter the reason, Dulaney Valley Family Service Advisors are here to answer any questions you may have regarding cremation.

Cremated remains may be interred in the traditional manner in a family site, single grave, or niche within the community mausoleum complex. The mausoleum contains interior glass front niches as well as exterior granite front niches. The cemetery also offers niches in a wall surrounding The Apostles Circle.

Ground Burial

Families may place cremated remains in a standard size space within a family lot. Or, the cemetery has smaller spaces specially designed for cremation only with a bronze marker for personal memorialization.

Mausoleum

Marble or Granite Front Niches

Dulaney Valley has several choices for outside niches. Niches are located in the Eternal Light Feature, Last Supper Feature and in the community mausoleum complex.

Glass-Front Niches

Glass-Front Niches

Our Mausoleum Chapel contains elegant niches with clear glass fronts in a bronze wall unit. The family may place personal mementos within designated niches. The glass-front niches afford a family the opportunity to view the urn in a peaceful setting.

Apostles Circle Niches

Niches are built into a wall surrounding the Apostles Circle Lawn Crypt Garden.

Mausoleum
