Mausoleum Entombment: A Perfect Alternative


Rest Above Ground

Mausoleum entombment is one of several properties that Bayer Cemetery Brokers offer to sell or re-sell for families. Similar to our “Cash for Graves” service, we are able to sell private or family estate mausoleums in Los Angeles county for a more inexpensive price compared to regular retailers. If a family has a previous purchased space, we can help re-sell it and provide them with the value. This is all to help families save on money while helping them with the burial arrangements, so they would have more time to grieve for a loved one. A mausoleum would be an appropriate alternative to the traditional grave site burial. Here is a little more insight on mausoleum entombment.


A private or a family estate mausoleum is an aboveground structure built specifically to entomb the remains of an individual or multiple members of a family. They usually resemble a house with a middle door and a stained glass window. The deceased could be laid to rest inside caskets of crypts or entombed in single urn niches, stacked or placed side by side. A place for flowers is often provided as well. The architecture of the mausoleum could be either defined as very ornate or simple. Built to last for ages, mausoleums are could be made of time defying stone, marble, bronze, steel, and reinforced concrete. Many of them are built in the classical, modern, Gothic, and Egyptian styles.

The word “mausoleum” is derived from King Mausolus, an Egyptian monarch, who was the very first person to be memorialized this way in 353 BC. The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, where he rests, stands as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. One of the most famous mausoleums in the world is the Taj Mahal in India.

How It Compares to Graves

There can be several reasons as to why a family or individual could choose to be memorialized in a mausoleum, as opposed to in a grave.

  • Complete privacy
  • Because the mausoleum is indoors, loved ones will be able to visit more frequently and comfortably during all types of weather
  • Dry, clean, and ventilated
  • Conserves land and saves ground use
  • Family will always remain together in spirit
  • It brings great honor and dignity displayed to the deceased
  • Some people may prefer to not be buried in the ground
