Community Mausoleums -The Queen of Apostles Crypt was built and dedicated in 1963 offering our Catholic families the opportunity for above ground entombment in a community mausoleum for the first time in the Diocese of Wilmington. The Phase I Expansion took place in 1996 and the Phase II Expansion was recently completed and dedicated in 1999. The Phase II Expansion offers the only indoor entombment facility in Delaware. Mausoleum Crypts and Cremation Niches are available in the Chapel area (limited availability) or within the facility itself. The impressive Christ the King Garden Mausoleum was erected near the entrance of the cemetery. A large variety of crypts and niches for cremated remains are available.
