This helpful video is designed to provide you with a broad perspective on the burial options available at Catholic Cemeteries.


The Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Chicago are committed to serving you and your family. Choosing a final resting place is a decision that people make once in their lifetime, we want to ensure that you are comfortable and happy with your choice. Allow us to show you your options and help walk you though the process of preplanning your final arrangements.

The Catholic Cemeteries have 45 locations throughout the Chicagoland area, each with their own unique features to offer. We can assist in locating the Cemetery nearest you or near your loved ones.

We offer options for traditional full body burial and the burial of cremated remains.

Graves are available for the traditional in-ground burial of a full body and can be memorialized with either a flat marker headstone or upright monument.

Crypts are available in the Indoor Community Mausoleums and Outdoor Garden Mausoleums and allow for the above-ground entombment of a full body.

Cremation Gardens offer a variety of cremation options in a serene and natural setting.

Niches are available for the entombment of cremated remains. They are available in the Outdoor Garden Mausoleums and Cremation Gardens. Illuminated Glass Front Niches are also available in select Indoor Community Mausoleums.

Cremation Graves are available in designated sections of select Cemeteries. They are smaller than standard Full Body Graves and are the perfect size to accommodate an urn containing cremated remains.
