Cemetery notes and/or description:
The courtyard inside the driveway circle in front of the old chapel is the resting place for hundreds of cremations. The names of those interred with birth and death years are inscribed on a series of memorial plaques. There are two plaques on the walls of an archway between the two chapels. These plaques are full, so there are a series of overflow plaques in an arc along a path within the garden itself.

The first plaque of names has the inscription: "Alleluia, Christ is risen, In memory of those whose ashes rest in this courtyard".
The plaques are primarily to memorialize those resting in the courtyard, but some church members buried elsewhere are listed on the plaques. These inscriptions are cenotaphs.
