Casket Burial Pricing
San Diego Burial Pricing – Very Affordable
Our goal at Funerals Your Way is to give you complete control over all your funeral options from the beginning yet make the process as simple and easy for you as possible.
To address this need, we have created the following Burial Packages; for many families, these bundles of services are a perfect fit. You may customize and add additional features to the package chosen. When a death occurs, this is what to do.
Interments in AlL Cemeteries
In addition to the burial plot and casket, there is usually the need for an outer burial container. There are not required by law but are generally required by the cemetery as a requirement for being interred there. The outer burial container surrounds the casket in the grave to protect it from sinking into the ground. There are a few types of these. The most basic is a grave-liner, generally made from reinforced concrete covering the casket’s top and sides. Other models surround the casket, are thicker, and offer features such as re-enforcement and personalization.

More traditional cemeteries feature elevated grave markers; each grave space is a separate plot. This is very common in smaller towns or order cemeteries. It is what cemeteries looked like when you were growing up. Many cemeteries have sections of the cemetery like this. An excellent example of this can be found at Mount Hope Cemetery.
Many modern cemeteries use a grave type known as a “Grave Crypt,” where a grave is designed to accommodate a double-depth burial container. This option has become necessary for space constraints in cemeteries throughout the US (and the world) as cemeteries are filling up. These cemeteries often have flat grave plaques in the ground.
A mausoleum is a rectangular-shaped building or above-ground structure accommodating caskets. Mausoleums can honor a single family or multiple families. Cemeteries often have multiple mausoleum structures, traditionally including a plaque affixed to the chamber entrance noting deceased information.
Selecting a Cemetery
Many items go into selecting a cemetery. Things include personal taste, location of the cemetery, price of the cemetery, religious affiliation, and others. There are a least a couple dozen cemeteries in the San Diego area. Some are large and have mausoleums housing hundreds of bodies and cremated remains.
The price of a lot or nitch for an urn varies greatly by cemetery and location with that cemetery. If your loved one is going to get a great view, it will cost more. We would be happy to give you recommendations to help with your decision – just ask.
