Ground Crypt Memorials
Glen Eden offers a variety of crypts, with marble, bronze
or granite fronts.
Bronze-fronted Crypts are available in the beautiful
bronze Outdoor Michigan wall in Livonia, and the Archangel
bronze wall at St. Gabriel Mausoleum also in Livonia.
Because of the unique nature of these crypts, elegantly

These are the only crypts in Glen Eden that do not allow
for the addition of vases. A bronze vase is included
with all other crypts.
Marble-fronted Crypts are available in all Glen Eden
Mausoleums, with solid bronze plaques cast with the
