Loudon Park Cemetery was one of the first in Maryland to offer a "community mausoleum" with seven levels of crypts. It was one of the first to establish its own "upright memorialization" department to sell monuments and statuary. And it has been a pioneer in the trend of "preplacing" tombstones on graves before people die.But cemetery President R. Ted Nuckolls said he won't consider Loudon Park a "full-service" cemetery until it gets one more element:A $2.3 million, two-story funeral home is now under construction near the Wilkens Avenue entrance to the 140-year-old cemetery, final resting spot for H. L. Mencken, Mary Pickersgill and other well-known Baltimoreans.
