Diamond Head Mortuary in association with Valley of the Temples Memorial Park offer several types of burial options to help you memorialize the lives of your loved ones for years to come. Having a permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the time following a death. It becomes a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one, or to commemorate important occasions.
Our options include in-ground burial, cremation memorialization and above ground entombment. All offerings are available in a wide array of prices and styles to accommodate your family’s needs.
