Holy Cross Cemetery, Akron in the spring

The Catholic Cemeteries Association offers the following selection of grave sections as final resting places:

  • Shrine Graves are located in sections of the cemetery where shrines or statues have been erected.
  • Monument Graves are located in sections that have been zoned to allow large family monuments.
  • Marker Graves are those that feature headstones that are level with the lawn.
  • Roadside Graves are graves located closer to the road for easier visitation.


The Catholic Cemeteries Association offers above-ground burial in mausoleums to all, at affordable prices. Some mausoleums at our cemeteries also include a chapel where Masses and memorial services are held.

Estate Mausoleums

An Estate Mausoleum can be personalized with a variety of options. These structures provide interment for family members, allow for private and personal meditation, urns, vases, and religious symbols and other enhancements which reflects your family’s preferences.

Sunday Support
