There are three means of final disposition that accompany the funeral ceremony… burial, entombment and cremation.
There are two types of burials…inground burial and entombment. Following the service at the funeral home or church, family and friends proceed to a cemetery for a brief ceremony followed by an inground burial. Families can also choose between a mausoleum and an above ground crypt when available. Craig-Flagler Palms Funeral Home, Memorial Gardens and Crematory are able to offer the Flagler community and our families several cemetery options, as we own and operate Flagler Palms Memorial Gardens, which is located on the same grounds as the funeral home.
Flagler Palms Memorial Gardens has six sections for families to select from for ground burial of casketed remains or cremains (ashes). They are Sacred Heart, Veterans, Garden of Peace (Jewish), Garden of Love (double depth, lawn crypts), Garden of Memory (Non-Denominational) and the newly opened Gardens of Angels and Prayer (both Non-Denominational). All ground spaces are for single interments, with the exception of the Garden of Love, which is for two interments. Upright Granite markers are permitted in the cemetery, except for the following sections which only allow for flat bronze markers, Gardens of Love, Peace, Sacred Heart and Veterans section. Also offered are Memorial Cremation Benches, where up to three sets of cremated remains may be placed. Memorial cremation Benches can be seen throughout the grounds.
We also offer, for those who prefer above ground burial, three Mausoleum Buildings. We offer single entombment spaces and tandem (for two) spaces. Two of our three Mausoleums have the ability to house cremains in niches. These are the Mausoleum of Memory and Mausoleum of Angels "II".All the niches are true companion niches, meaning they can hold two urns in one niche space. The Mausoleum of Angels "I" does not have niche spaces. The Mausoleum of Angels is to be a five building area with two phases already completed. Phase III is in the design/planning stages.
