Some people simply prefer the idea of being laid to rest above-ground and choose internment within a building-like structure. Others choose mausoleum space so loved ones are not left with maintaining an outdoor gravesite and are protected from the elements when visiting the deceased. There are several types of mausoleums available. Crypts, very small buildings with no windows and a sealed door, hold only one person. Other mausoleums can be designed and sized to hold an entire family, containing spaces for several family members. Other building designs can house the remains of hundreds, often called “community mausoleums”. Mausoleums can be simple structures or resplendent with stained glass windows, stately bronze doors, handcarved statutes and chapels or other worship places within.
