A final rest that gives your family peace

In February 2011, the Session of Germantown Presbyterian Church formed the Germantown Presbyterian Church Memorial Garden Association to establish a memorial garden with columbarium on our church campus for the purpose of interring the cremains of members, their families and others as approved by the Memorial Garden Association. The Association is responsible for administration of the garden.

The Memorial Garden, located in the courtyard between the sanctuary and Evans Chapel, was dedicated on Sunday, March 30, 2014 with 95 wall niches and 30 above-ground niches as well as a memorial tablet for members who wish to memorialize family members interred elsewhere. The Garden is designed to accommodate expansion of both wall and above-ground niches. Forty wall niches will be added in 2022.

Wall and ground niches are assigned by the Association in chronological sequence and order of interment. The only exception to this provision is that the surviving spouse may reserve the adjacent niche or space upon entering into a subscription agreement. All niches are single interment.

 The Christian name, date of birth and date of death will be inscribed on the faceplate of each niche or on the memorial tablet.

The cost of subscriptions is:

Wall niche:                    $2,500
Ground niche:              $2,500
Memorial Tablet:             $750

The subscription cost for wall and ground niches includes the cost of the urn. The cost of cremation is not included in the subscription cost.
