Committal Services

The Columbarium and Scattering Ground committal planning services are available to you and your family. Our staff is sensitive to your personal needs and can assist you in pre-planning your service or at time of need.

Our selection of complimentary services when purchasing a niche or the scattering ground includes:

  • Custom bronze faceplate or plaque
  • Religious ceremony performed by either our Episcopalian priest or Chaplain
  • Music by the bagpipe corps
  • Keepsake program
  • Post ceremony reception in DeKoven Hall

If you are pre-planning your service, please let us know your favorite Christian hymnals. The Academy has a cadet choir.

If the deceased was a member of the military, we graciously offer the cadet color guard, an American flag presentation, 21-gun salute and Taps.

We are unable to offer some of these ceremonial tributes during the summer months of June, July and August when the Corps and faculty are on summer break. We do, however, offer the temporary storage of cremains in the Noble Victory Memorial Chapel for individuals and families who have purchased a niche or the scattering ground.
