From India's Taj Mahal to the grand Great Pyramids of Egypt, the mausoleum is a time-honored custom of above ground entombment. People of different ages and faiths recognize the wisdom and dignity of selecting a mausoleum as their final resting place. At one time, the advantages of mausoleum entombment were available only to royalty, the famous and the wealthy. This situation no longer exists. Today, these advantages are available to everyone.
Above ground entombment is clean, dry and ventilated. The granite and concrete construction lasts through the ages.
When you select individual or family entombment space in Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens, you not only provide a beautiful memorial to your family, you make a practical investment. Information is available on single or companion crypts as well as the private or semi-private rooms.
The large interior of the mausoleum includes a chapel flanked by two wings. The focal point of the chapel is a large marble altar and a striking, antique stained glass window imported to Baltimore from Germany in 1868. Each wing has six alcoves and beautiful stained glass windows. Beautiful art lines the wings of the chapel mausoleum.
The beautiful and inspiring Chapel is available for memorial services and quiet meditation. The soft lighting creates a comforting atmosphere for family and friends to gather.
East & West Cloisters
The Cloisters are covered buildings behind the east and west wings of the chapel mausoleum. These buildings offer peaceful settings with a tranquil fountain in the center of each area. Beautiful rod iron doors are at the entrance and exit of each building. The buildings are covered, the breeze moves through the doors and the top of the building.
Pre-Developed Open-Air Chapel & Mausoleum

The selection of a final resting place is a family duty that, sooner or later, must be fulfilled.

Price advantages in pre-constructed areas are available to our current lot owners and to the general public. As the new mausoleum is constructed, the prices certainly will rise. Upon completion, the prices will stabilize at the established price.
