General Information

OUR MEMORIALS / MARKERS

The selection of a memorial can be a daunting and heart trending experience, something that we at Mt. Olivet Memorial Park can fully appreciate. Our memorial specialists understand this and, with professionalism and sensitivity, help our customers find the most fitting memorial.

It is imperative that you consider the type of memorial you want before you purchase grave spaces as the types of memorials allowed differ by section - and sometimes differ by space within certain sections.  A memorial type may be allowed on one space and a different memorial on the next space.  Please check with our office to learn the specific memorial types allowed on  the grave space for which you own interment rights.

Where Can I Purchase a Memorial?                                                       Illinois State Law prohibits cemeteries from requiring that you purchase a marker from them.  So, by law, you can purcahse a marker from anyone provided it meets witht he cemetery's rules and regualtions regarding the interment rights that you purchased.

Why Should I Purchase a Marker Directly from the Cemetery?                  There are many reasons we prefer you to buy the marker from us:

  1. At Mt. Olivet, we sell top-quality product at a fair price.  We try to keep our prices low and fair.  Our mark-ups are not as large as other cemeteries charge.
  2. All profit from your purchase goes back in to the upkeep of the Cemetery including new features, general care, etc.  When you purchase from elsewhere, that company keeps the profit for themsleves.
  3. We know exactly what our rules and regulations are and will not sell you something that does not comply.  Many times, we refuse to install markers purchased from outside companies as the product does not meet our standards.
  4. We are dedicated to the families we serve, and we are not going anywhere.  If there is ever a problem with merchandise we sell, we stand behind it.  If you purchase the marker somewhere else and there is an issue, we can not help you with it.  You must go back to the place you bought it from.

Types of memorials allowed in various areas of our cemetery:

Upright Granite Memorials

Slant Faced Granite Memorials

Bevel Granite Memorials

Flush Granite Memorial

Flush Bronze Memorial

Prearrangement

Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?
