What is a Mausoleum?
Simply put, a Mausoleum is a free-standing building or structure used for the above-ground entombment of casketed remains into a crypt, or the inurnment (placement) of cremated remains in a columbarium niche.
In one way or another, Mausoleums have been built and used for above-ground entombment for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians are most famous for constructing elaborate types of mausoleums and structures where they 'entombed' their deceased instead of burying them. The Great Pyramids are a prime example of a monument built for the purposes of entombment that have stood the test of time.
The Mausoleum at San Tan Memorial Gardens was built with much of the same purposes as those of old - to be a final place of rest and to stand for generations to come.

San Tan Memorial Gardens is proud to be your best dollar-value option when it comes to purchasing a final place of rest for your family or loved one.
Each time a crypt or niche is sold, an Endowment Care fee is collected. 100% of the Endowment Care fee is deposited into the cemetery's irrevocable trust fund which is then utilized for maintenance and upkeep when the cemetery is completely sold out.
As the cemetery grows and eventually reaches capacity, interest alone from the trust fund will be enough to maintain not just the mausoleum but the entire cemetery for generations to come.
Construction of the Mausoleum was completed in September 2023. The Grand Opening was held on Tuesday, October 17, 2023 and is open every day during the following hours:
The mausoleum will truly be one-of-a-kind in affordability, function, and security. The Mausoleum is equipped with 24/7 security monitoring as well as an alarm system. It is locked nightly and will not offer any crypts or niches on it's exterior.
Existing ground-burials, whether it be a casket or an urn, can be transferred to the Mausoleum. Aside from the Endowment Care fee, the amount originally paid for the ground-burial plot will be credited and only the difference in price will be required in purchasing a crypt or niche for the transfer of a loved one.
A one-time Endowment Care fee is charged each time a plot, crypt, or niche is purchased, and cannot be refunded.
