For thousands of years, mausoleums have served as an alternate way to pay tribute to loved ones as opposed to modern burial methods. The most famous being the Taj Mahal, mausoleums come in many shapes and sizes. Lake Charles Cemetery added the first phase of their garden mausoleum in the late 1990's, with their first entombment taking place in March of 1998. Our mausoleum has the capability of accommodating 96 entombments and 48 cremations.
