Prairie Home Cemetery in Waukesha, WI offers single crypts or "true companion" options with side-by-side crypts sharing one door, or couchstyle crypts that hold two caskets sideways.
Crypts, or above-ground burial, date back to before the days of Christ. At one time, the advantages of mausoleum entombment were available only to the wealthy. Today, the same opportunities are available to all.
We believe that a
person should have the opportunity to make a selection by choice rather
than price.In contrast to a ground burial, where an outer burial container
(vault) and a grave marker need to be purchased, above-ground burials
are simplified because the mausoleum crypt has a built-in protective
concrete casing, and the crypt door doubles as a grave marker.
