|Shrine of Memories Mausoleum was the first crematorium in Utah. It was built in 1929. While everyone that was to be cremated was sent there the ashes were not always left there. So for example Virgil Wayne Bybee 1908/1991 who is listed as being there might have been cremated there but his ashes are not there. The family took them so he is not listed on their register.|
It was then renamed Salt Lake Mausoleum. There are hundreds of crypts (indoor & out) and niches there. There are beautiful stained glass windows in every hallway that depict a Utah scene; each of these windows were made at Tiffany's of New York. The niches were very hard to get good pictures of because of all the glass (could be my camera and lack of expertice too!) But the niches are beautiful!
The mortuary was built in 1996.
