What We Do

Cemetery Options

Chapel of the Chimes Hayward offers 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.

Above Ground Entombment

A mausoleum is an above-ground structure constructed to hold one or more caskets or urns. It’s the perfect choice for people with an aversion to being buried in the earth, or those who wish to provide guests with the comfort and convenience of indoor visiting. Chapel of the Chimes Hayward offers a number of mausoleum choices to fit your families needs or budget.


An Introduction to Mausoleums

The Pyramids of Giza in Egypt are among the oldest and largest mausoleums known to man.

Other examples of famous mausoleums include the Taj Mahal, in Agra, India and it is the world's most photographed and famous mausoleum. 

Another notable mausoleum is the  Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in Arlington National Cemetery, it is perhaps the most recognized mausoleum in North America.


Private Mausoleums

Private Mausoleums offer a very exclusive option for the family who has touched many people in our community. This form of recognition will create a lasting legacy.
Family mausoleums, companion mausoleums and private cremation estates can be specially designed to reflect your families vision.


Indoor Mausoleums

Set within the lush gardens of the memorial park is the Circle of Peace mausoleum, the only round mausoleum in California. Featuring an exquisite, domed stained-glass ceiling, the mausoleum can accommodate both caskets and urns.

In-Ground Burial

Chapel of the Chimes Hayward offers a variety of in-ground burial  choices including individual, companion or family estates surrounded by the natural beauty of our gardens. Whether your family seeks traditional burial spaces, lawn crypts or in ground cremation placement our cemetery offers something to meet every family’s needs and budget.


Private Estates

Chapel of the Chimes Hayward offers several private family estates that can allow for multiple burial spaces,  private bench and a personalized upright monument. Each family estate is beautifully landscaped and can easily accommodate  both traditional and cremated burials.


Lawn Crypts

Lawn crypts offer some of the advantages of both in-ground burial and mausoleum interment. A lawn crypt is underground like traditional in-ground burial, but it has a burial chamber similar to a mausoleum. Since lawn crypts are pre developed in groups, they are generally less expensive than traditional burial, while offering the same traditional appearance from above. Lawn crypts generally feature flush markers. Ask for details. 


Traditional Burial

Among the countless options within our scenic park, in-ground burial remains one of the most popular choices among the families we serve. Chapel of the Chimes Hayward features the beautiful Hillside Garden, with majestic views of San Francisco Bay. Unique gardens have been created to honor veterans, as well as Chinese, Korean, and Japanese cultures. Dedicated gardens are also reserved for members of select community groups.

Today many families are opting for cremation allowing for memorialization at any time. Chapel of the Chimes Hayward offers a number of options for cremation including glass front niches,  columbarium, cremation boulders and our beautiful bench estates to fit your needs.
