Tomb Restoration and Monument Preservation
Tombs, copings, and monuments need regular maintenance and treatments that are sensitive to their historic materials. If your family cemetery property has suffered damage from delayed maintenance or requires other restoration work, we will treat and restore it using years of preservation masonry and stone care experience. Oak and Laurel Cemetery Preservation, LLC also performs yearly limewashing, preservation-grade cleaning, and monument repair. See our Portfolio for examples of past work.
Cemetery History and Interment Research
Years of research in the repositories and archives of New Orleans and elsewhere have allowed us to offer services ranging from interment records research to large-scale cemetery histories. Contact us to see if we can answer your research or genealogical questions.
Consultation Services and Master Plans
Cemeteries are complex landscapes with multiple needs, ranging from the planning of new interments to the management of abandoned or endangered property. Oak and Laurel Cemetery Preservation, LLC has provided advisory and consultation services to numerous cemetery non-profits, historical societies, and cemetery authorities in order to create sustainable, responsible, and practical management practices for historic cemeteries.
