Green burial is the newest interment option at Swan Point. The Ellipse, our designated area for natural burials, opened in May of 2019 in the historic core of the cemetery.
Peaceful and private, The Ellipse is surrounded by a variety of mature trees and shrubs. In place of individual monuments, a granite ledger for communal inscriptions of names of the deceased is located in the area’s center to best preserve its natural setting. Every grave space in The Ellipse allows for one full body burial or two sets of cremated remains. Both full body and cremation interments take place without the use of any type of permanent outer container.
