New Crown Cemetery is part of the Indiana Memorial Group. Established in 2000, IMG's goal is to bring family ownership values back to cemeteries and funeral homes. New Crown Cemetery, like all of our properties, benefits from the time, energy and resources of management and staff that truly cares for the cemetery and the community and families it serves.
Located on the south side of Indianapolis, New Crown Cemetery was established in 1900. Just over 100 years later, the cemetery was purchased by David Shipper and is now part of the Indiana Memorial Group. The cemetery has undergone several improvements over the past few years, including new fencing, new land development, new gardens, and a beautiful new mausoleum, The Chapel of Peace.
New Crown provides professional service to families in its community, and offers pre-arrangement plans for individuals, families and businesses.
At New Crown Cemetery we are committed to offering and maintaining exceptional memorial property. We provide a wide selection of interment property in all price ranges and to suite all tastes. In addition to traditional ground property, we offer single and companion lawn crypts and wall crypts, ground property for cremated remains as well as niches and distinguished family memorials. We also offer the option of our mausoleum, The Chapel of Peace.
An Endowment Care Fund has been established to help finance the long-term maintenance of the property. The fund helps guarantee the cemetery will not fall into disrepair and that landscaping will continue be tended to for years to come. The principal of the Endowment Care Funds can never be touched, only the income generated from it, so you have the security of knowing your memorial will be properly maintained in the years ahead.
Traditional Ground Burial
Earth burial is still the most common of all cemetery services, partly because burial plots offer families a place to return to visit and pay respect to their loved ones, offering a peaceful resting place where their memorials and final tributes can be shared with generations to come.
New Crown Cemetery has acres of beautiful garden-inspired sections, landscaping, trees and hedges offering many ground burial options, including: family estate lots, multiple space lots and single grave spaces. Depending on the needs of the family, there are many areas throughout the cemetery from which to choose.
Another interment option besides traditional ground burial is mausoleum entombment. A mausoleum is simply a large building designed to provide above-ground interment (or entombment) for a number of unrelated people. Sharing the cost of the mausoleum with other individuals has made it an affordable and attractive option for many. The Chapel of Peace was built in 2000 and contains 444 spaces, as well as 130 niches. An East Wing addition to the chapel will be built in the future, with plans for 222 more space when it is complete.
With Cremation, you have options that aren't available with a traditional burial. You can place the cremains in an urn and inter it in the family plot, place the urn in a niche in the New Crown Cemetery Mausoleum, or customize your cremation.
