At time of death it may be necessary for the family of the deceased to purchase a lot.  Please contact us at 815-943-4640 to arrange for selection for the interment or inurnment.

Many people purchase lots for themselves and others prior to need.  This relieves necessity for any family member to make such an important decision during a time of extreme stress and grief.  It also allows a person to choose a preferred location.

Mount Auburn Cemetery has designated sections of the grounds according to type of memorial desired.  These include:

Monument Only

Monument and headstone

Bevel headstone

Flush, ground level headstone

There are areas where there are mixtures of memorial types and designs, including cremation benches.  Families can choose to purchase an estate for several burials.
