Mausoleum

Mausoleum Serving The Fairfield & Trumbull, CT Areas.

Please Note: Mausoleums are locked on the weekends and would require a keycard for entry
 On May 23, 2003, the Oak Lawn Cemetery Association was proud to open our mausoleum. Local dignitaries and community members were present with clergy to celebrate this opening. Local clergy blessed the facility, consecrating it for use. Today, the Oak Lawn Mausoleum is a non-sectarian facility, serving all races and religions, and offering a tranquil setting for those who prefer an above-ground burial.


The Oak Lawn Mausoleum is a state-of-the-art facility that is located in a private wooded section on Oak Lawn’s beautiful grounds. Our complex contains both indoor and outdoor crypts and niches. Altogether, the space has a total of 1,485 crypt spaces and 700 niche spaces (for families that opt for cremation). With plenty of space and a beautiful setting, it is no wonder that the mausoleum is becoming an ever more popular option for families across the area.

About Oak Lawn Mausoleum

Oak Lawn Mausoleum offers a number of options for families and individuals seeking entombment in its walls. We offer the following configurations and options:
Single Space Crypts 
Double Space Crypts 
Family Crypts (Suitable for 4 Caskets) 
Our mausoleum was constructed with some of the finest materials available. The marble was quarried from around the world and shipped directly to Oak Lawn. Our white marble (Venatiano Marble) comes from Italy, green marble (Vende Indio) from India, and the orange marble (Crème of Valencia) and beige marble (Crème of Marfil) from Spain. In addition to this, the granite used for the outdoor crypts comes from Sardinia.
About Mausoleums

While above-ground burial has only recently become a popular choice in the United States, in reality, it is a very ancient practice. Famous mausoleums include the Pyramids of Egypt, the Catacombs, and the Taj Mahal. The word “mausoleum” comes from the above-ground tomb of Mausolos. He died in approximately 352 BCE, and his ornate and elaborate tomb became one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Today’s mausoleums may not be as ostentatious as some of the famous ones from antiquity and the early modern period, but they provide just as restful and reverent a final resting place. Most mausoleums contain a mix of crypts (for caskets) and niches (for urns). There are numerous configurations of crypts, and there are also different options for niches. We would be happy to show the various crypts and niches available at Oak Lawn Mausoleum and explain the differences to you.

Another important thing to remember when considering an above-ground burial is that it is not necessarily more expensive than an in-ground burial. As always, you have options. For instance, Oak Lawn Mausoleum has both indoor and outdoor crypts and niches. Both provide a tranquil and peaceful resting spot. However, the indoor areas tend to be more expensive, because they offer visitors and guests a sheltered and climate-controlled space for reflection and meditation.

Choosing Above-Ground Burial

Many families today are considering above-ground burial for themselves or their loved ones. They see this type of burial as serene and protected, with opportunities for comfortable visitation in every season of the year. In particular, our mausoleum provides a peaceful place for remembrance and reflection.

Oak Lawn Mausoleum flawlessly combines the old and the new, the manufactured and the natural. No description can do it justice. To understand its appeal, you simply must visit it yourself. If you are considering above-ground burial, please call (203) 259-0458 or (203) 292-1277 to arrange for a personal visit with one of our staff members.
