“We consider Vestal Hills Memorial Park as more than a final resting place. We view it as a healing space where families can gather again and again to share life stories. Having worked in the cemetery industry my entire life, I fully understand the important role we play as caretakers of each family’s history. We strive to provide a high level of personal attention and compassion to those who have entrusted us with their family’s eternal memory and perpetual care.”
Chairman and CEO Emeritus of CMS Mid-Atlantic
Traditionally, most people are interred in the ground with flush bronze memorials designating their location. Families can choose from a variety of locations throughout the memorial park, including specific sections reserved for members of different faiths, nationalities and organizations. Cremations can also be permanently memorialized as ground burials or above-ground burial in granite, marble and glass-front bronze cremation niches.
A mausoleum is a structure for above-ground entombment and cremation inurnment. There are oftentimes both interior and exterior locations available for a mausoleum entombment, and cremation inurnment. Many families prefer interior mausoleum entombment, because it provides for visitation year-round, when weather conditions might otherwise be prohibitive.
Many families opt for cremation instead of more traditional burials. They might also wish to permanently inter the ashes in the ground or in a mausoleum niche, which can provide the benefit of both traditional interment and cremation inurnment — a place for family members to visit and pay their respects for generations to come. We can accommodate cremations in many different ways. If your family is interested in cremation, we can also recommend providers if your Funeral Director has not already done so.

Vestal Hills Memorial Park offers a wide range of bronze memorials. Memorials are typically ordered from the James H. Matthews Company headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Matthews memorials are hand-crafted and can be of solid bronze and include hand-drawn painted images or exact photographic images. Memorials provide lasting memories for those paying their respects when visiting Vestal Hills. If you are interested in more information, please contact our Administrative Office.
