What We Do

Cemetery Options

Chapel of the Chimes Oakland offers several types of burial options to help you memorialize the lives of your loved ones for years to come. Having a permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an  essential part of the time following a death. It becomes a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one, or to commemorate important occasions.

Our options include cremation memorialization and above ground entombment. All offerings are available in a  wide array of prices and styles to accommodate your family’s  needs.

Above Ground Entombment

A mausoleum is an above-ground structure constructed to hold one or more caskets or urns. It’s the perfect choice for people with an aversion to being buried in the earth, or those who wish to provide guests with the comfort and convenience of indoor visiting. Chapel of the Chimes Oakland offers a number of mausoleum choices to fit your families needs or budget.
