Is Pre-Registration Available?

How are Committal Services Handled?

Currently the cemetery can do seven services a day on a first-come first-served basis.


  • Every hour from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • 3:00 p.m. is reserved for cremation only

No services are allowed to start after 2:45 p.m., and all interments are made immediately after the committal service.

Committal services are held in our chapel. The remains are left in state until the family has left the cemetery, and then interred by cemetery personnel.

Are Military Honors Provided?

Yes. The cemetery can arrange for honor guard services through our Memorial Rifle Squad and the Minnesota Military Funeral Honors Program.
