Make arrangements for final resting place

We offer three burial and cremation options

Mountain View Cemetery has recently opened up space to expand its three memorial options. Remember your loved ones amidst the lush green panoramas and historic views at Mountain View. 

Above-ground columbaria and niches

A columbarium is an above-ground structure with niches designed to hold interments of cremated remains.

For up to two interments, choose a companion niche on our shared columbaria. For up to 10 or 20 interments, choose a custom family columbaria.

In-ground cremation space

Lots for cremated remains can be purchased for either two or four interments.  

In-ground casket burial space

Each casket burial lot can accommodate two caskets and eight cremated remains. Lots can be reused with additional caskets buried 40 years after any previous interment.

We are a Green Burial Council-certified hybrid green cemetery. We don't require the use of embalming, or vaults and liners, and we accept biodegradable urns and caskets.

How to arrange a burial or interment

Please contact us by phone, email, or fax. See our contact information on this page.

How to sell, transfer, and refund an interment space

We don't allow the private resale of interment spaces.

However, you may transfer interment spaces between family members or return unused spaces to us for a partial refund of the original price.


Prices do not include tax.
